Genesis has been working with Mo’ MAGIC to help transform the lives of youth by exposing them to educational opportunities surrounding emerging technologies. By providing initial seed funding and network connections, we were able to hold our first workshop on June 8, 2017 at Hayes Valley Park in San Francisco. Kids had the opportunity to discuss drone applications for technology and were provided with their very own drones and flying lessons. We hope that in the future these continued efforts will inspire kids to become future leaders and innovators within their communities and around the world. We are working with City leaders to create a new initiative based on this prototype called “Tech Inspires Youth”.
The following quotes were made regarding the first workshop:
“When I got back to the center, the Middle Schoolers were beaming with glee from the drone training. Kids who never get excited were bubbling over.”
– Rika Chambers, Mo’ MAGIC
“The kids came back so excited, motivated and eager to tell everybody how they were able to fly a drone, and of course they are already asking us for the next workshop.”
– Diane Petrova, Hamilton Families
