Dear TechHive supporters,
Thank you all for your amazing and generous donations. We are immensely grateful to everyone who donated and took the time to check out and support our campaign. We more than reached our campaign goal thanks for your collective contributions. All donations will go a long way to support teen design internships, and we really could not have done this without you.
We are also heartened to learn that many of the people who shared our campaign and donated included teens themselves, sending us a clear message that they value deep and meaningful supplemental learning experiences outside of school time. From strangers to community partners, friends and family, your support has made this happen for Bay Area teens, a majority which come from underrepresented groups in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math.)
We are already busy making social robots, planning design patterns, upgrading software, and scheduling speakers. The first cohort of teens will be giving presentations and demonstrations on December 19th, 2015 at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Please mark your calendars and join us in celebrating in their design accomplishments. We hope you will stay connected and continue to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr too as teens their work.
We are so excited to have met our fundraising goal and to have shared this project with all of you. On behalf of the TechHive and the Lawrence Hall of Science, a heartfelt thanks to everyone!
---Sherry, Hilary, & Ming and the TechHive team
