Patriots Technology Training Center (PTTC) (www.patriots-ttc.org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit learning facility geared toward teaching 5th-12th grade students the disciplines of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).  Our goal is to help minority students to bridge the "digital divide" to careers in STEM by encouraging them to enter college-oriented curricula leading to careers in those fields.  We do so by hosting academic competitions in which students work with mentors and are provided hands on experience.
