Digimarc is dedicated to promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) careers among young people through education and innovative technology programs. We have made a commitment to volunteer work with In4All and STEM Connect at our partnership school, Greenway Elementary School in Beaverton, Oregon.
We also have partnerships with our Creative Production Company Premier Press in Portland, Oregon and ChickTech: Portland, a non-profit organization helping young girls discover an interest in the STEM industries.
This spring, several Digimarc employees volunteered at Premier Press to help introduce 13 high school girls to Digimarc technology and its intersection with print technology. This program was collaboratively-sponsored by Premier, Digimarc and ChickTech and included a tour of the facility and instruction on enhancing and printing a poster with Digimarc Barcode.
“We were so proud to host this event and help expose these young women to the cutting edge of print and advanced barcode technology,” said Juli Cordill, CMO, managing director, Premier Press. “It was a fun day of innovation and education and it left us all feeling wonderfully enriched.”
The students received a tour of the Premier Press facility and its equipment from Premier’s President, Chris Feryn.
Digimarc’s Andi Castle explained how Digimarc Barcode is added to a printed piece.
The students learned how to turn this poster into a “connected poster.”
