Design Your Dream (Girls) School

Sisu Academy is a new  free private high school for girls in San Diego.  We are launching our school design cohort Feb 11 from Malcolm X Library. We have two community events going on that we are spreading around town to invite girls and their families to help co-design the school.

The design events will be held at Malcolm X Library in Southeast (1/23) and Oceanside Library (1/25).  Please RSVP at https://www.eventbrite.com/o/sisu-academy-18470316461

What is Sisu?  “Sisu”: The Finnish concept for stoic determination, grit, bravery, resilience, and hardiness.
​Sisu Academy is the first all-girls tuition-free, boarding high school, with an embedded incubator fueled by entrepreneurs and seed capital creating an immersive learning environment that funds all operational costs. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit for public good.

Robotics STEM Volunteers Needed

We are so excited to be a Creative Mentor for the lilSTAR Winter Robotics Program with Camille Eddy.  @theSTEAMcollab facilitated the collab  between Spurgeon Thomas of lilSTAR and Tom Lupfer of Clarity Design.

The registration is closed for students, but we still need technical volunteers to assist the students with building and designing the robots.  The Robotics Program will take place on the campus of University of San Diego on Saturday, 12/15/18 and mentors are needed any time between 10am-5pm.  If you are interested or know someone who may be, please share and complete the registration at: https://lilstar.org/2018-winter-robotics-program/

Best wishes to lilSTAR for a successful event and all you continue to do to change the students lives in Southeastern San Diego!
