March 14, 2016
Director of Marketing Management reported that the SNAPkids event will go down as one of the best events yet at Synapse. Megan said, “It was amazing to see the excitement on the kids’ faces." The team did an awesome job educating the little ones about so many topics – all of which was very interactive. A special thanks to John, Barry, Jonathan, Carla, Craig, Carolyn, Chip, Jay, Eddie, Eric, Chris & Alex for all their great contributions!
Synapse Wireless hosted their first ever SNAPkids educational session designed to teach youngsters about the fundamentals of engineering-related topics. This day-long session provided hands-on activities that covered topics such as the basic fundamentals of logic, problem solving, electricity, gravity, friction, computer programming, mathematics and more. In addition to the educational curriculum, the students participated in many interactive activities that are designed to pique their interest in STEM while teaching them life-long lessons in a collaborative learning environment.
“We are thrilled to roll out this program and introduce our passion to the future leaders of this country,” said George Myers, Synapse CEO. “Technology plays an enormous role in everything we do – getting kids exposed to all of the possibilities that they can one day spearhead is an honor and a privilege. We hope they leave Synapse wanting to learn more and gain curiosity about everything around them.”
SNAPkids was held at Synapse headquarters, in Research Park, Huntsville, Alabama, and coincided with both Huntsville City and Madison City spring breaks. The sessions were open to ages 7-13 with the goal to expand the program to a wider range of students for next year’s event.
In addition to hosting the first SNAPkids educational day, Synapse team members also mentor local students through the FIRST Robotics organization. They also support St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, Manna House and the Huntsville Botanical Gardens.
