Jeff Bezos, currently the richest man in the world, puts his money to good use. Jeff went to Princeton University and he finished his studies in electrical engineering and computer science. This is the reason why he is supporting 24 public schools for the Amazon Future Engineer program.
Jeff Bezos’ Robotics Program
The future for robotics program in Nashville looks bright as they get a financial boost from the richest man himself. The Amazon Future Engineer program will help support 24 schools with 10,000 dollars each. The money will be allotted to the expansion of computer education system whether it would be for the acquisition of high-technology equipment or other things.
Bezos explained his actions to a crowd of students:
“I’m an inventor, I like to think of myself as an inventor. I started at a really young age. I used to invent all kinds of things, like burglar alarms to keep brother and sister out of my bedroom. I encourage all of you to think of yourselves as inventors. The future is about invention. … If you have an education in engineering, science, math, robotics and computer science, you’re really well positioned for that future.”
In this age of technology, the Amazon CEO is right that we should invest more in tech-related jobs. This is a booming industry and if we want to be successful, then we should make smart decisions in our life.
