Community Involvement

With a history of innovation in the areas of technology and education we seek partnerships with community organizations where our expertise can have a positive impact on our community. An example of our community participation is our involvement with the SciGirls summer camps where young women pursuing an education in science and mathematics get a chance to interact with experts in a variety of science and technology fields.

Camp day at FCIM is an interactive experience where the young women get to take an active role in producing an app for mobile devices. They participate in every step of the production including conceptualizing the idea, creating the digital assets, and discussing the code that is used to turn these ideas into apps. It’s a blast for everyone and a reminder of the connection between the technology we develop and the learners that use it.
