BMM Testlabs supports tribal STEM education

BMM Testlabs has announced its support of STEM education for Tribal students with a paid summer internship programme powered through BMM’s Next Generation Initiative and the American Indian Science and Engineering Society.

This partnership between BMM and AISES promotes opportunities for indigenous students in STEM programmes to work in an independent gaming laboratory and receive hands-on experience alongside BMM’s team of expert test engineers. It is part of BMM’s Next Generation initiative, which supports youth and young adults through partnerships with non-profit organisations focused on advancing educational opportunities and improving public health.

“We have supported AISES through a summer internship programme now for several years, and we have found it to be a great experience for BMM and for the students,”

– said Travis Foley, BMM’s chief government and regulatory officer.

“We’re focused on investing in tribal gaming’s future, and our AISES interns are an important part of that commitment. We hope the real-world experience they get and the new skills they learn at BMM paves the way for potential career opportunities and instils a greater appreciation for STEM professions.”

BMM’s 2024 summer intern Daniel Gallardo, a descendant of the Tunica-Biloxi Tribe of Louisiana, who is pursuing an undergraduate degree from Crown College in Minnesota, said:

“I am drawn to BMM’s mission and manner of testing, which ensures the integrity and fairness of the game. BMM’s testing process and the use of the BOAT online approval system resonates with my long-term career aspirations of working for my tribe in the gaming industry. I am enthusiastic about contributing to BMM and am eager for the experience to learn more from the team and expand my skills.”

The BMM Testlabs AISES paid summer internship at BMM Testlabs will last for 10 weeks, beginning on June 3.
