We are active on a number of fronts promoting this mission, to include working within public schools and libraries to provide access to entrepreneurial and STEAM learning resources all too frequently lacking availability. Our efforts are both self-generative and collaborative, as we build our own learning tools and work with great tools created by others. We embrace the open web, and look for ways to expand opportunity by working with others. We celebrate these collaborative models when we find success in them, such as via Coder Dojo LI and Fredx Coder Dojo, a meme of social coding clubs coming out of Ireland initially.
Kickit is our evolving attempt to transform our 501(c)(3) into an API that anyone can use to drive entrepreneurial opportunity for themselves. This tool represents our belief in personal control and social empowerment. With Kickit, anyone can give directly to the causes and efforts they believe in and receive tax deductions in the process that are easy to manage. This provides increased opportunity for people with ideas that require funding, or project owners looking for incentives to provide their crowdfunding project supporters on top of the base insurance of receiving tax deductions for their initial donation.
We have many projects in the oven, and many more on the drawing table. These are exciting times for entrepreneurs in the educational-technology space. The young people of today can receive a state-of-the-art education, light years away from past generations experiences. Making these learning opportunities available to large numbers of people is our goal.
