Campos EPC, a Denver-based oil and gas pipeline company, has issued a challenge to industry partners and friends to join the company in supporting the ATLAS Digital CUrrents program.
DigitalCurrents is a three-week technology-intensive summer workshop designed to provide hands-on computer science and engineering experiences to female and minority high school students.
Campos EPC has set a fundraising goal of $40,000 to sponsor 20 students in this summer’s workshop and to help build a diverse science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) pipeline in the metropolitan area.
Marco Campos, the founder and managing principal of Campos and an alumnus of the University of Colorado College of Engineering and Applied Science, sees the challenge as an investment in the future.
“Our business is not only about oil and gas pipelines. It is about building a future by investing in our communities and our kids,” Campos said.
DigitalCurrents is an outreach program of the ATLAS Institute and is offered in partnership with the National Center for Women and Information Technology.
