BENEFITING: Cabrini Connections
Our vision is that every child who joins a tutor/mentor program in 7th or 8th grade is starting a job and career of his or her choice by age 25. Many school-aged children in Chicago's Cabrini neighborhood benefit from these comprehensive mentoring-to-career programs.
The Cabrini "tech club" program is raising money for a lego mindstorms set to teach inner-city kids about robotics. The MINDSTORMS NXT 2.0 combines the versatility of the LEGO building system with all-new technologies, an intelligent microcomputer brick and intuitive drag-and-drop programming software to allow students with little or no programming experience to create robots in only 30 minutes!
