As engineers we understand the vital importance of a quality education. We have witnessed first hand the increased opportunity we were afforded because of our own educations.
We are passionate about providing the same educational opportunities to students so they are most likely to find a fulfilling career they are passionate about. As part of this pursuit, we created the BrainPad to provide an intuitive STEM/STEAM learning experience for students of all ages.
By providing students with interactive engagement (minds-on and hands-on) in the classroom, the BrainPad increases student interest in learning Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics.
As part of this mission, we have volunteered both time and materials to the following organizations:
- Midtown Mosaic Church LMTLESS summer program
- MACUL CS Summit & Student Technology Showcase at the Capitol
- National Association of Manufacturers’ Manufacturing day
- Maker Faire
- Square One STEM educational network
- Roseville High School REST program
- Oakland Schools STEM Summer Camp
- Google coding event from 2017
- Microsoft’s DigiGirlz program
As part of our continued support of open source hardware and software, GHI Electronics has been a proud design and manufacturing partner of the nonprofit BeagleBoard.org Foundation since 2016. With a shared passion for education and simplifying the process of building electronics products, GHI Electronics and BeagleBoard.org participate in brain-storming and roadmap discussions that play a role in the continued growth of the BeagleBoard.org family of products. With BeagleBoard.org Foundation headquarters located a few miles up the road, we are able to closely work with and support BeagleBoard.org’s educational mission. We sponsor education forums, meet-ups, and makerspace activities to help ensure skill growth and access to knowledge critical to our shared future.
GHI Electronics Field Day
A structured tour day where we open our doors to teachers and students to learn about Robotics concepts, Game development and Electronic circuits. You even get a free slushy and gifts to those asking good questions! This video is example of one the tours we have already given.
Tours are are usually designed to handle anywhere from 10 to 50 visitors. If visitors are under 16, we ask that you provide at least one adult mentor for every 10 students.
