HERA and the Milwaukee Tech Coalition Recognized as 2021 Excellence in STEM Award Winners by STEM Forward

HERA and the Milwaukee Tech Coalition were recognized by STEM Forward, metro Milwaukee’s leading STEM education and outreach provider, for its partnership aimed at advancing the skills training in data and artificial intelligence for area students. HERA awarded its Foundations of Data and Artificial Intelligence badge to students who completed Milwaukee Tech Hub Coalition’s pre-internship program to certify the knowledge they received from the program and the strong skillset they can offer to the region’s employers.

HERA’s badge was awarded to 64 students from area high schools, colleges and universities who completed the program on the ethics and impact of data and artificial intelligence. Students can use this badge to showcase their new skillset and differentiate themselves as they apply to internships and careers post-graduation. The badge also recognizes Milwaukee Tech Hub Coalition’s pre-internship program as a credible educational course that teaches students how to develop new data-driven solutions and use artificial intelligence and data in a variety of industries.

The Excellence in STEM Awards, more commonly known as the Stemmy Awards, honor education institutions, employers, individuals and partnerships that demonstrate an unparalleled commitment to promoting STEM awareness and improving STEM competency to area students. HERA and the Milwaukee Tech Coalition along with this year’s other award winners will be recognized at STEM Forward’s 18th annual sySTEMnow Conference, held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, at The Italian Community Center with a virtual option available.
