Archetype SC Donates Technology Supplies to AAST

Posted: November 19, 2019

Archetype SC answered the call of its community, donating networking supplies and other technology items to an area school.

The Academy for the Arts, Science, and Technology, a nationally certified Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) school located in Myrtle Beach sought donations of equipment for students to receive hands-on training in the technology field. In the classroom, students are learning about coding, networks, and other computer science activities in a theoretical sense, but more equipment was needed to allow for students to truly apply the knowledge gained to a real-world scenario.

Joseph Bonanno, Archetype SC’s president and co-founder, hopes the firewalls, switches, computers, and other equipment will help foster the next generation of technology specialists.

“When we heard about the need for equipment at AAST, I jumped at the opportunity to help impact our youth in such a tangible way,” he said. “As a technology company on the Grand Strand, it is important for us to position ourselves to help grow the interest in technology in the area. AAST does a great job of teaching our youth, so any way we can support their programs is a great opportunity for us.”

Part of Archetype SC’s mission is to help grow and advance technology on the Grand Strand by educating others on cyber security, digital experience, and data analytics. By working with the Academy for the Arts, Science, and Technology, Horry Georgetown Technical College, and Coastal Carolina University, the next generation of technology professionals can experience the power of technology in their own community.
