The Sheyene School founded originally in Venezuela, is a non-profit branch of our parent organization The Sheyene Institute, and has now expanded into multiple countries to enhance technological literacy in STEM related fields, by using robotics, to low-income children of all backgrounds, and ethnicity, in underdeveloped regions, since 2007. We work with children within 7 to 18 years old.
Our programs increases diversity in computer science by reaching students of all backgrounds where they are at their skill level, and in ways that inspire them to keep learning.
From elementary school all the way to high school, our programs are designed specifically with a focus on diversity and recruitment of underrepresented students. Including low-resource communities or conflict areas such as rural schools, refugee camps, non-formal school systems, to ensure inclusion and to enhance global participation.
AFTER CLASS PROGRAMS
Our after class programs provide our students with the opportunity to experience new and exciting challenges. Whether they are curious about computers, or science, our programs apply to a diverse range of interests. Classes are led by our qualified staff of volunteers and through partnerships programs. Programs run throughout the year.
