Speaking of interns, our incredible Director of Internships, Doreen Frempong-Baah, is visiting for the month of June – all the way from Accra, Ghana.  Doreen has been an integral part of the team for 8 years and we couldn’t be more elated to have her stateside!

During her time here, Doreen has exhibited at NW GA RESA, presented at GACTE about our Virtual Internship program,  joined us at the Cobb In Tech conference, where she met some of our intern applicants and supported MAD-students at Georgia DOE’s annual MathCon and CS Con.

Our team has been busy helping you close out the school year in style! We now offer a new experience for you: the MAD-minute! Bring our amazing team of facilitators to your school to take over 3-4 classes each day and introduce students to an amazing set of activities, ranging from AI to coding, design to entrepreneurship, hi-tech, lo-tech, and no tech, virtual or in-person. Check out some of our recent class push-ins…

DeKalb County STEM K-5 teacher Monique Brooks has blown us away with her commitment to integrating technology in PBL…in this case, that technology is mobile app development.  Ms. Brooks worked with a 5th-grade science teacher and had students create apps as a way to inform the public about common pathogens.  We love students using apps as a way to inform and help the community!

… checking out some of these amazing #Civics4All #TakeAction projects created by NYC students in the Bronx (High School Districts 8, 10, 11). We are proud partners of the NYCDOE initiative to help promote civic readiness among students by providing a medium for students to engage with their communities through apps that they are building around the issues that they care most about. Huge shout out to Supt. Fia Davis and her amazing team (AAden, Cris, Marc) for supporting this initiative.
