We’ve had an amazing start to 2017 here at Blossom! We have many people to thank for our growing and continuing success. First, I’d like to start by thanking SparkFun Electronics, Inc. for including Blossom in their community partners! Another shout out to Rev1 Ventures for hosting our amazing first ever Columbus Hackathon!
February 4th was our first ever Hackathon specifically designed for young girls. We held the day-long event at Rev1 thanks to their generosity. We had a huge turn-out of 45 girls all eager to learn about the amazing world of STEM! The girls got to participate in soldering, programming robots, coding, and more. The success of this event was due to all the help we received from our volunteers and the young girls all eager to learn! Our next Hackathon will be in Buffalo, New York so keep a look out for updates!
Hardly two months into 2017 and we’ve already made sales for seats at our summer camps! We’re only just getting started and I can tell that we’re in for another successful summer of fun STEM learning! Let’s keep up this momentum as we near the summer!
Thank you all for your continued support. We’ve reached a new level in our development as an organization. We have a face in the public and will continue to spread our message to inspire young girls to learn and achieve through the world of STEM.
