Black Families Technology Awareness Day at Rensselaer

2023 will mark the 24th anniversary of the Rensselaer Black Families Technology Awareness Day.

The first event was held on Feb 2, 1999, on the Rensselaer campus, and has been a tradition on the campus since. After two years of hosting the event virtually, we are looking forward to presenting a full day of in-person programing as well as virtual options for the 2023 event.
