Curious Sessions?
« on: October 07, 2013, 10:52:44 AM »
Hello Everyone!


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!

Hello there! I think I was the one you met during load in on Friday. Definitely looking forward to seeing you at the next Open House, and I'll be sure to let the other board members know we connected at our next meeting. :)

Hi,
Both of those organizations look great!   I hope to hear more at the open house.
There is Quality in the Details
That is All

I would be happy to explain more at the open house. I am very excited about what I have learned so far about FamiLAB and think that much of what our organizations are trying to accomplish are similar and compatible. I'm looking forward to seeing the lab and meeting everyone!
