About The Organization & Event

We Connect The Dots is opening a STEAM Research & Education Center in 2019 that will play a role in supporting workforce development and educational programs for communities surrounding the center and across the state of NY. This is an opportunity to help raise funds for our STEAM Research & Education Center. We will be sharing a first look at images of the newly designed space, images of what will be possible, a look at our new Podcast Studio “Studio Nebula”, and an opportunity to experience first-hand what our programs are like. Have fun exploring mixed reality with the HoloLens, explore the new center through a Virtual Reality tour with HTC Vive VR. Learn how to use command line coding while making a humanoid robot stand up. Fly a drone through an obstacle course, program a Sphero robot to move through a maze. Make a IoT object using and micro:bits. Group Mind Mapping at intervals throughout the night, with our unlock the box as the grand finale. Where participants are searching for clues to unlock the locks that lock the box, that holds a ticket for a chance at a door prize.

We Connect The Dots is a national not for profit education organization servicing students in multiple states today. Our services create positive outcomes for youth ages 13-25 with a focus on providing free services to youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our programs are highly structured, well implemented, individualized, and offer one-on-one and small group support. We bring awareness to the career opportunities growing today and coming in our future, with skills based training to ensure students can compete and succeed in pursuing careers across STEAM industries.
