NYSTEC and KIPP Tech Valley Middle School (KIPP TVM) have formed a new community partnership. KIPP TVM is part of a larger national network of schools from across the United States with each KIPP school being locally run with its own school board. There are four KIPP schools across Albany, soon to expand into Troy, and has about 1,500 enrolled students. Approximately 92% of students come from economically disadvantaged homes and about 95% of KIPP students are black and brown. KIPP is tailored to meet its community’s needs by providing snacks, meals and longer school days to help keep students nourished both physically as well as intellectually.
A core KIPP mission is to promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). In honor of this, NYSTEC has donated $5,000 towards a new Robotics Program for 7th/8th grade students. In addition to the donation, NYSTEC will be recruiting volunteers from our talented staff to help support this great endeavor. The students will be learning how to program the robotics using Scratch, a drag and drop block software and will assemble their own robot.
KIPP’s ultimate goal is to help raise and educate students to have a life full of choices. NYSTEC fully endorses this and welcomes KIPP to this new community partnership.
April 9th, 2021 was Go Blue for Autism Awareness Day at NYSTEC—in support of understanding and acceptance for people with autism. Mostly working from home and participating on webex calls, NYSTEC’ers wore blue and participated in blue-themed computer and or smart phone generated group photos as NYSTEC was proud to go blue for all of our friends and family touched by autism. A donations goal of $500 was set and will be made at the end of the month to the Friendship Circle of the Capital District, a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to the families of individuals with special needs.
