Maker Outreach: Taking Tech to Urban Schools

Maker culture has evolved and found its way into nearly every environment. Unfortunately, the costly nature of this movement has restricted many urban schools from being able to experience this new technology. Using inexpensive elements, such as Strawbees and the Do Ink App, we can bridge the digital gap that underprivileged children face. We will introduce interactive storytimes, our portable green screen kit, and show building play that can be easily implemented for all ages.
