Impact Statement

In 2015, women in the US occupied only less than 26% of the STEM workforce. Globally, 28% of all R+D seats are attended by women. Today, African-American and Latinx workers represent 29 percent of the general workforce population (up from about 24 percent in 2001), however, 16 percent of the advanced manufacturing workforce, 15 percent of the computing workforce and 12 percent of the engineering workforce - all rates that have remained nearly flat between 2001 and 2015. Our goal is to alleviate this issue and strengthen our underserved friends

Needs Statement

Science In A Suitcase needs new laptops to run the Lego Mindstorms and WeDo software packages, as the current laptops are becoming unusably old!

Cash donations are of course always welcome, we would put this towards new laptops, robotics kits, and accessories.
I have never touched ANY curriculum related to programming or robots, and My initial nervousness was quickly replaced by excitement. It was so cool to be able to pick up on key concepts and immediately start having fun while learning. I never considered myself a "science person" as a kid, but I suspect that if I'd had access to these incredible lessons it may have worked out differently. I can't wait to share my newfound robot-enthusiasm with the kids at Cornerstone Orphanage!
