HacKIDemia is an international network of mobile invention lab started in Singularity University, Mountain View, California by educator and former Googler, Stefania Druga. The project aims to sensitize kids and their parents about value behind building hardware and software in a playful manner through creative, interactive and hands-on workshops. Currently, there have been more than 40 workshops conducted for more than 2000 children by 200 mentors in ten cities around the world: Bucharest, Berlin, Sofia, Austin, Sao-Paulo, Lagos, Dallas, Paris, New York and Singapore.
We are in the process of recruiting core members and seeking funding opportunities. If you like to know how you can be involved in this project, please write to William Hooi at firstname.lastname@example.org
