Dear Robotics for All Community,
Please join us in wishing Robotics for All a very happy third anniversary! Three years ago, the idea of Robotics for All was born with an email to Principal Lambert of Castro Elementary School.
In the years that have followed, we made tremendous progress toward our mission of closing the opportunity gap by providing free after school robotics classes to students in low-income communities. In our first year of operations, we taught a mere 24 students. The following year, we taught 143 students. This past year, we taught a staggering 377 students. As it stands, our summer classes will be canceled, but we are eager to return to teaching in the fall or whenever it is safe to do so.
While the pandemic is dampening our short term growth, the progress we are making on multiple fronts during this time is certainly going to accelerate our growth when we are able to resume classes. This past month our volunteers have collectively donated hundreds of hours at home working on several initiatives.
This pandemic is tough on everyone and we express our greatest appreciation to everyone doing their part in stopping the spread of the virus. We will get through this together and come out stronger. When we are able to resume our classes, the work that our volunteers have been putting in these past two months will undoubtedly pay off both in the quality of our instruction and the pace of our growth.
But for now, let’s take a moment to celebrate all we have accomplished in the past three years. Whether you contributed as a donor, volunteer, or mentor, thank you. This could not have been done without you. Together, we are taking steps to tackle the opportunity gap and we cannot wait to see what the next three years will bring us.
Happy third anniversary, Robotics for All!
