I currently serve on the board of directors of 826 MSP, formerly the Mid-Continent Oceanographic Institute: a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing the achievement gap in the Twin Cities among K-12 students. We are the most recent addition to the 826 National network of non-profit organizations.
826michigan is our sister organization in Southeastern Michigan. Similarly, they run in-school programs, tutoring sessions, after-school workshops, field trips, and many other activities geared towards writing of all shapes and sizes. While I was a Ph.D. student, I was honored to beb a small part of this amazing organization. Go visit the Liberty Street Robot Supply & Repair in Ann Arbor and the Detroit Robot Factory!
