I was able to connect with a group FamiLAB members briefly while setting up for the OMMF on Friday night and would love to continue our conversation. I am from Iridescent
, an non profit which seeks to connect children and families to STEM professionals through hands-on projects designed to foster creativity and self confidence.
There are two projects I am working on expanding in the Orlando Metro area: Curiosity Machine
- an online platform which hosts 60+ projects for children 5-18 years old and connects them to mentoring professionals from around the U.S.Technovation Challenge
- a global contest which prompts teams of teenage girls to create Android apps which address a problem in their community
I plan to attend the November open house, but would love to keep our conversation going in the meantime. It looks like FamiLAB has done a lot of work to bring people and resources together, and I would very much like for my organization to be involved. If any of Iridescent's programs are of interest to the FamiLAB community or you would like to know more, let me know!
