English Course for 10 Mexican scientists

Young Scientists group at the RIA

A big thank you to everyone who has supported our efforts to improve the English skills of our budding scientists! Through a collaboration with Intel’s Clubhouse program in Mexico, we were able to provide ten young scientists with scholarships for English courses at the RIA (Learning and Innovation Network). These students are between the ages of 12-15 and are studying a range of scientific disciplines in school ranging from biology to mechanics.  

Learning to speak English through these courses will teach these students to become engaged, digital citizens with a voice that will allow them to compete in an increasingly globalized world. This project will also promote skill-sharing within families and in turn, improve the socioeconomic prospects for entire communities.

Donations like yours support our mission of bridging the digital divide in Mexico by providing low-income communities with quality educational opportunities and access to digital technologies. Your support has and will continue to play a key role in our success. We thank you for your generosity and look forward to a continuing partnership with you.
