What if you could give everyone the skills and confidence to tackle technical problems? Wouldn’t that be cool? In UW professor Beth Kolko’s experience, it’s not just cool – it’s awesome. Her Hackademia lab is a place where students from all backgrounds can come together and get their hands dirty, no experience necessary.
In addition to funding hardware for the Hackademia lab (which Beth has been personally supplying), our grant will also go towards a set of workshops aimed at reaching out to underengaged communities. The ideal end result? A chain reaction of enthusiasm, empowerment, and (of course) awesome projects!
