City: La Romana
In the summer 2018, we completed our fifth program at the Politecnico Fundacion MIR (School for Girls) run by MIR Charities, which provides education and social services to underserved families living in the greater La Romana area of The Dominican Republic.
We had the privilege of training 12 teachers and 25 students that were very eager to learn and hungry for knowledge. The positive attitude from the entire community and the organization from the administration made this experience a memorable event. At the end of the program, the school prepared a wonderful ceremony with local folklore performances presented by the students, and the delivery of medals and diplomas to all the participants.
We continue working hand in hand with Fundación MIR with the implementation and extension of our robotics program and the preparation of their students to participate in the FIRST LEGO League Challenge, an international competition organized by FIRST for elementary and middle school students.
