Fraser Woods Montessori School is set to present Random Hacks of Kindness Junior. The event, which will take place on Saturday, May 4, offers elementary school students in fourth through eighth grade from across Connecticut the opportunity to explore the power of computing by developing technical solutions to practical problems.
Random Hacks of Kindness Junior (RHoKJr) will bring together technology experts (university professors, college students, high school teachers and students) and elementary students to create smart phone apps, websites, or educational games to help local causes.
Patterned after the global event, Random Hacks of Kindness (www.rhok.org), whose mission is to create a self-sustaining global community of innovators building practical open technology for a better world, and to ensure their work creates impact in society, participants will work directly with local stake holders to create real world solutions.
The following organizations have requested technical assistance and will be presenting their requests at the May event: Newtown Trails Commission, Newtown Kindness, Ben’s Bells, The Animal Center of Newtown, Autism Speaks, and the American Diabetes Association Connecticut Chapter.
