Before I share a recap of what we co-learn this week, let me call your attention to some of the stories and testimonies in the community.


Community Spotlights

We are constantly looking for opportunities to showcase the amazing work you are building with your skill. I met with some participants in the 30Days of Learning to hear from them what their experience has been like, I was more than impressed with the results. check the video for the details

What an Experience!

This is barely 8 Days into the program, and we have seen this level of transformation. Another interesting thing about this spotlight is the current course of study by the participants. coming from non-STEM background and learning as much as this in barely 8 days is amazing.
