This blog post captures a portion of our recent Informational Meeting & Dessert Night held at Bonkerz Indoor Playcenter in Moscow. Thanks Bonkerz for hosting us!
HIS, Inc. is a new, increasingly vibrant, and grassroots educational organization. We are an all volunteer organization, 501(c)(3) non-profit, with no paid staff. This translates as: we are very much driven by the individuals who are involved with us here locally. We plan to grow and expand our reach and influence regionally and nationally but primarily we are most interested in investing in and building high-quality STEM enrichment here at home.
To this end – At the end of the day our mission leads us to provide an increasingly full and comprehensive STEM education for your family. As you may have noticed the bulk of our activities are suited for 4-12 year olds. We have intentionally focused on this age group during our infancy.
With the addition of a FIRST Tech Challenge team this year (12-18 year olds) we are now beginning to develop opportunities for high school aged homeschoolers as well. All this to say that if you have a specific interest or need, either a topic, course, or for a specific age group please chat with me or any of the individuals that were introduced tonight.
