BPD in the Community: On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, participants in this year’s Boston Teen Police Academy took part in special activities focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at the BPD Academy in Hyde Park.
The teens got the opportunity to work with 3D printing and design technology and even got the chance to operate drones thanks to a partnership with the Brandeis University MakerLab. The Brandeis MakerLab is organized around a social justice vision that emphasizes broad access to innovation expertise and technologies as well as the positive impact that innovation can make in the world.
Lunch was provided by the Essence of Thyme Café which is a local Hyde Park non-profit that educates intellectually challenged adults in the culinary field.
We thank our partners at Brandeis and the Essence of Thyme for their participation in today’s event and all of the sponsors of the Boston Teen Police Academy for their continued support.
