Former President Barack Obama once said, “Science is more than a school subject, the periodic table, or the properties of waves. It is an approach to the world; a critical way to understand and explore and engage with the world, and then have the capacity to change that world…”. Many educational institutions have taken note and have increased emphasis on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) skills for youth, however, not all students/communities have access to resources that help foster an interest in STEM education and give them tools to succeed in STEM-related fields.
 
Impact 4 Good’s “Computers 4 Kids” is extremely high-energy and interactive, with teams competing in technology-themed challenges before assembling actual computers that are donated to a local school or after-school program with a focus on STEM education and computer coding. Teams use tablets to compete in a tech trivia challenge as well as the great “Bumper Ball Face-Off” in which teams use tablets to pilot remote controlled spheres to knock off other teams’ spheres and complete other tasks to earn points.
 
Following the challenges, each team gets to work assembling a computer, which includes a hard drive, screen, and keyboard/mouse combination. In addition to building the computer and screen, teams are tasked with preparing a wallpaper/home screen message for the beneficiary child, which can only be done by teams using appropriate CODING skills! If possible and desired, and based on availability, children can surprise your group to participate in the grand finale to build the computers with your teams! The event culminates with a beneficiary representative thanking your group in person for a meaningful donation.
