Welcome to aSTEAM Village's Mozilla Gigabit Project Blog! Follow us as we utilize next generation telepresence technology to teach computer programming and video game design in a multi-school setting.
We are very grateful to the Mozilla Foundation for looking at our project and proposal to serve 1,380 students this summer and selecting it as one of the proposals that it felt warranted the inclusion in the Kansas City Spring Pilot Program. We would also like to thank GoogleFiber for helping offset the funding gaps by injecting $13,800 into our camps to supplement the $5,000 in Mozilla funding assigned locally. Through the geneoristy of Mozilla and GoogleFiber, aSTEAM Village will serve 1,380 students who will be able to attend coding camps at Benjamin Banneker Charter Academy of Technology, St. Peter's Catholic School, Academie Lafayette French Immersion Charter School and Brull Home School group better known as the Gemini Gentlemen.
aSTEAM Village continues to implement community learning model strategies focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math education as the means to uplift, unite, inspire and strengthen our community by engaging students, parents, educators and businesses at a common spaces. We are especially grateful to Kari Keefe our Mozilla liasion for her support and belief in our efforts and also to the leadership of the schools because without their support and willingness to embrace the aSTEAM Core Values as adopted from FIRST Robotics there would be more barriers to achieving the many successes achieved by aSV students over the past 3 years.
