Tech Captains didn't get funded, yet

A few weeks ago I sent in a grant proposal to the Neighborhood Learning Alliance, and it didn't get funded. It was seeking $8,000 for the start-up of a new afterschool program in a local high school in Pittsburgh Public Schools. It was to help with academics and long-term success for the students as they got to college.

My plan called for a computer club of sorts called, Tech Captains. It would seek to get a few kids from all the sports teams, clubs and activities in the school so that they could make software and apps to better help them in their activities. For example, a few on the basketball team could do a stats sheet and playbook for the basketball team's use. So on for drama or band or helping with our summer camp and water polo conditioning routines.

See the proposal in a PDF:


A slide show about the plan is also available:

Well, this didn't get funded, yet, sadly.

Now, what to do?

Well, we don't have a coding club at our school, but we do have a Linux users group. As we are a Hmong charter school, the club is called the Asian Penguins.

Here is some information about our club:


We welcome feedback. Let us know what you think.

Thank you,
