The promotion of science in our schools is a topic near and dear to my heart and here's a great way to help:
New non-profit charity Friends of FIRST(www.friendsoffirst.org) doing
some great work supporting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
education in our local public schools by funding FIRST robotics teams.
Here is an artical Nola.com did about them.
They're currently working with Morris Jeff Community School and Samuel J
Green school to start FIRST LEGO League teams and in talks with several
others. Promoting STEM education in New Orleans is important to all so
check them out and consider supporting them.
They can also be found on facebook at www.facebook.com/friendsoffirst.
Like and share to help get the word out.
