Robotics camp helps students cross the digital divide – Knight …

Robotics Camp 2013 – Short Film from Shamus Coneys Films on Vimeo.A year ago Knight Foundation announced plans to put laptops into the hands of young students in Charlotte, N.C., through Project LIFT, a public-private partnership that seeks to improve student achievement. Today, we see what can happen when students have access to technology: They can build a better mousetrap – or at least one made of LEGOs – while also building self-confidence.Knight partnered with Project LIFT (Leadership and Investment for Transformation) because we believe children without tech tools and access to the Internet cannot fully participate in the world around them.

Statewide initiative aims to help at-risk girls | StAugustine.com

Susan Remmer-Ryzewic remembered being a young girl with growing pains and how a teacher reached out to help.It was an act of kindness that she said changed the course of her life.“Girls need people to step up and make that difference in their lives as they struggle with the harsh realities of the world,” said Remmer-Ryzewic, president and CEO of Ponte Vedra Beach-based EHR Investments Inc.That’s why Remmer-Ryzewic and her sisters organized the First Coast Girls Initiative in 2001 to advocate for at-risk girls. It’s why she recently helped launch a new statewide initiative, Voices for Florida Girls, designed to bring to the forefront and find solutions for issues that inhibit at-risk girls from reaching their potential.In June she told her childhood story at the kickoff, which brought together about 50 area civic and business leaders. They are now spreading the word about the initiative via networking and their Facebook pages, among other things.The next step is to get people to join the process, in which they will first learn the obstacles that face girls today and the “best practices” intervention programs available to help them, said Linda Alexionok. She is director of Voices for Florida, the nonprofit leading the charge, and executive director of The Children’s Campaign, a Florida watchdog group.After the “know” period, residents will share the information they learned with their community, civic and church groups; help the nonprofit get area-wide discussions going about programs and funding; and provide grassroots leadership to get them implemented, Alexionok said.At-risk girls are the focus because 33 percent of the referrals to the juvenile justice system are girls, but there is a “disparity of services” for them, with only 5 percent of resources directed to their needs, Alexionok said Continue reading
