As students solve civic challenges through Geekdom’s CivTechSA Program, they become directly involved with the City of San Antonio (COSA) to solve real-world civic problems and gain necessary skills for their future. This collaboration between students, CivTechSA and COSA, grows civically-minded tech talent in San Antonio while overcoming common civic challenges.
Middle school and high school students work on civic challenges during pitch competitions, showcases and class projects. Throughout the year, students engage with the City, CivTechSA, and our partners.
If you are interested in partnering with CivTechSA and the City for the upcoming year of educational programming, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the first year of CivTechSA, COSA canvased departments to identify civic issues and put them into a Civic Problem Bank. Through rigorous scoring, COSA selected several civic challenges for the Residency Program. The remaining civic challenges were distributed throughout the 6-12TH Grade and University-level Educational Programs as well as the Entrepreneur Program.
Additional challenges will be released for the program’s second year. Stay tuned for more information.
