Students in Kenya and at-risk students in Denver have the right to a high quality education and resources. Technology education teaches tools to communicate and collaborate. Through our Learning to Connect and Connecting to Learn program, students in Kenya and at-risk Denver students are working together to learn STEAM skills. The work they do is building critical thinking skills and letting them learn how to work with a diverse group. These are necessary for 21st century learners
Students in Kenya and at-risk students in Denver suffer from the same lack access to STEAM education and are falling behind in the 21st century skills- critical thinking, collaboration, communication- necessary for a successful future. These students need STEAM to open doors and give them a path forward.
Through connections made in the pilot project, students from Kenya and those in the under-resourced, communities of Denver will be working collaboratively, across the globe to learn and teach technology, art, science and language with and to each other. The program will teach STEAM and cultivate a deep understanding of how their cultures are the same but different.
This collaborative cross-cultural project will improve students educational experience. Students will learn meaningful skills to become productive citizens and plot their own course in life. Through technology and education, these young people will build the future.
