To support more STEM education, the CAA Head Start is starting a Robotics/Computer Program at Ted Berry Head Start in West End.
We had a great Kickoff with representatives of Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board and REDI Cincinnati stressing the importance of growing local talent in order to attract companies to our region. We also had Prof. Austin Lee from Northern Kentucky University demonstrating a humanoid robot.
This new CAA Head Start program is a significant part of building a "West End High-Tech Education Hub" by Code for Kids in collaboration with Cincinnati Public Schools, which has two schools in West End: the George Hays-Jennie Porter Elementary (Ohio's first High-Tech Elementary) and Robert A. Taft Information Technology High School.
Students from Hays-Porter did a demonstration of computer coding and they did a fabulous job!
