Teachers are equipped and students are engaging as they are inspired together through unplugged coding (off the computer), rocket launch, drone design, Lego robots and more. We meet the needs of each individual participants group: schools, after-school programs and community youth service providers . We provide 6-8 weeks programs where youth participate virtual and/or in person with 15-25 students per class, once per week. Outcomes are tracked through various assessment methods, including quizzes, final design and final video or written reports. In 2020, we launched in SE Florida and are excited to expand to Orlando and Central Florida. Additionally, this funding opportunity will allow us to pilot Tech for Kids in a way where youth will have access to their own skill assessment builder. Our Tech for Kids program will begin their baseline of matching up resources to ensure each individual participant meets their college and career goals. For middle school students, we will engage and encourage them to utilize various educational programs and resources to develop 21st century essential digital literacy skills to succeed. Our digital platform connects these students to transportation, skilled mentors, simplified admissions processes, post-graduation resources, and affordable college solutions.
