City: La Romana
In the summer 2018, we completed our program at the Politecnico Fundacion MIR (School for Girls) run by MIR Charities, which provides education and social services to underserved families living in the greater La Romana area of The Dominican Republic.
We had the privilege of training 12 teachers and 25 students that were very eager to learn. The positive attitude from the entire community and the organization from the administration made this experience a memorable event. At the end of the program, the school prepared a wonderful ceremony with local folklore performances presented by the students, and we provided medals and diplomas to all the participants.
We continue working closely with Fundación MIR with the implementation and extension of our robotics program. The school is preparing a team of students who will participate in the FIRST LEGO League competition for the entire country.
