The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas has a new mobile unit, unveiled in the summer of 22, called the Tech Hub. It’s an interactive STEM lab and gaming truck aimed to provide more access to education and play for children and teens across the metroplex.
The Tech Hub aims to introduce children, specifically those in underserved areas, to the same opportunities to improve literacy in science and technology, help build critical thinking skills, and encourage them to take on a more active role in the community.
The Tech Hub's primary use is as an eSports Gaming Center on the go!
The Y is also expected to unveil a second mobile unit later in 2023 called the Rec Hub, which will provide access to recreational sports. However, the Tech Hub can also provide recreational activities while we wait for our Rec Hub.
Tech Hub will soon offer children hands-on experience to learn robotics, coding, and other STEM programming. The hub is primarily an esports gaming center to learn and compete with other Y's.
The Tech Hub vehicle is available for rental. If interested, please fill out the interest form, and a Mobile YMCA or Esports Director will contact you with further information.
