Robotics Program for Girls at Skid Row Learning Center

This summer 15-year-old volunteer Sydney Morrow launched and ran a Robotics Program for Girls at our Skid Row Learning Center. Her project was funded by a grant from the AspireIT program and the National Center for Women’s & Information Technology.  The participating students built robots in small groups and learned how to program them. Sydney plans to continue tutoring at SRLC and working with students on coding and robotics. Thank you, Sydney, for your commitment to our students!

2019 Digital Learning Day


In 2018, our students accessed over 38,000 hours of digital learning! This year, to celebrate #DLDay2019, our Skid Row Learning Center participated in Hour of Code – a fun and interactive hour of computer science. Younger students got a visit from the PBS SoCal Kids Mobile Learning Lab and participated in developing their STEM skills through games and engaging hands-on activities.

Make a difference this Digital Learning Day! With your support, we can provide digital devices for our students, online tutoring support, digital after-school programs, wifi and hotspots for learning on the go! Visit schoolonwheels.org/digital to donate!
