Skid Row, LA may not be the first place you think of when it comes to high tech innovations, but this former resident of Los Angeles’ notoriously rough and tumble neighborhood has been one of the most impressive in the world of innovation and invention.
Among other innovations, he invented the concept of creating a video game that can be played by kids of all ages and abilities – a feat largely unheard of until he and his team at Gameloft made it a reality.
He also invented a program that allows SMHS students to conduct real-life research alongside top scholars at Caltech.
For the past two years, he and his colleagues have been working with SMHS teachers to develop a new STEM program that mirrors the success of their popular Honors Humanities course at the Huntington Library in San Marino.
The program, which has been implemented in the past few months, combines a cutting-edge computer science curriculum with a real-life application, a hands-on robotics competition and a series of educational challenges designed to teach students about coding, engineering and innovation.
A lot of work goes into this, but the result is a truly unique learning experience for our young scientists and engineers.
Ultimately, they are able to translate their discoveries into the real world through an interactive and engaging hands-on STEM curriculum adapted from a similar program at the University of Texas.
The Foundation is proud to have partnered with the San Marino schools and community members to make these innovative programs a reality. To learn more about how you can support the next generation of leaders by making a donation, please contact us!
