Do you want a feel-good drone story for the holidays? Check out these videos below – while the delivery simply went from the sidewalk to the front yard, kids receiving stockings via drone received a double gift: the excitement of a Christmas present and the encounter with new technology.
Based in Auburn-Hills, MI, the Kids First Initiative focuses not only on the immediate health and wellbeing of children in need, but also on improving their futures through contact with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math). “What would the world look like if we provided our children with the tools to not only think outside the box, but to completely recreate it!” says Kids First.
Richard Bell, President and CEO of the Kids First Initiative, is committed to empowering children to get excited about science and technology by offering STEAM events and demonstrations.
“Our young people cannot be what they cannot see. The Kids First Initiative’s Career Pathways program is not just about education, it’s also about the education and wages associated with a profession that enables our students to live the best possible lives, ”says Kids First Initiative. “What makes our program unique is that Kids First is constantly looking for practical opportunities in various professional fields. Whether electrical engineering or forensic pathology, our goal at KFI is not only to make you aware of job shadowing / internship opportunities, but also to connect the interested student with a potential employer. “
