Radnor, PA: The Franklin Foundation for Innovation announced it's STEAM partnership with Philadelphia's Public School District which will include a long-range roadmap to improve STEAM career engagement for the district through the Foundation's nBrain Program.
nBrain is a unique suite of services created to deliver technology-supported STEAM solutions to improve engagement for students who otherwise might never get the kind of exposure to STEAM careers they would need to pursue them.
"Our world is becoming more connected at a distance - which is a weird thing to verbalize but very true. We're closer than ever but further apart. Same holds true for career realities for today's students. Kids interested in STEAM disciplines find themselves with fewer direct resources than ever before and our public schools are suffering as well. This collaboration aims to solve that for kids in Philly. I hope to see it replicated elsewhere." stated Endre Jarraux Walls, the Foundation's CEO and Founder.
More details on the partnership will be released this year.
