We are an education/innovation laboratory located in Baja, Mexico; a city that is in the border with California. Our main goal is to democratize innovation, providing STEAM workshops to low-income communities in order to reduce the technology gap in kids and youths. We use Scratch and other technologies to develop workshops in rural communities, schools, companies and different parts of Mexico, inspiring kids to aspire to pursue a career in a STEAM field. We work together with governments, academia and private sector with a program named: Science Against Violence, where the kids receive the workshops subsidized by our allies.
