PROJECTS

  • Funded a Hope Jar request from Theodore Roosevelt School No 10, in the City of Passaic, which serves a high-need, low-income population, for 24 Rasberry Pi Starter Kits for their afterschool STEM program serving students in grades 3-8 . These technology resources enable students to explore the workings of computing, and to learn how to program in languages like Scratch and Python activity, ultimately allowing them to broaden their STEM horizons to include hands-on computer science knowledge and experience. 

  • Partnering with Eva’s Village Hope Residence to launch a first summer STEM workshop that will teach homeless children coding, robotics, game development, and other skills that foster educational success and greatly increase their chances of breaking the cycle of poverty.
