As part of the OpenTech LA’s community outreach program, MCS installed tech equipment (including 20 tablets) at The Knowledge Shop, an after-school computer learning enrichment program for underprivileged kids on Pico and Crenshaw. By providing early access to ed tech and other resources, OpenTech hopes to remedy an early opportunity gap which remains a critical barrier to acquiring STEM-related skills in impacted neighborhoods. Best of all, OpenTech LA is creating a pipeline of tech apprentices for the longterm benefit of the community!
