STEAM for the SDGs: Engaging Youth via Coding with Commitment
In September of 2022, the United Nations panel on #STEAM for the #SDGs – Engaging Youth via Coding with Commitment featured Michael Melillo, Bervin Harris, Prisha Shroff, & Robert Thomas from Renaissance Youth Center with moderator Dominic-Madori Davis. The focus was on how we can inspire & empower young people to make real change in their communities & the world, impacting the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations! #SDGMS2022 PVBLIC Foundation
10 years ago we had a vision to put the “T” of #STEM Discovery Cube to bring #coding to young people in #OrangeCounty with Raspberry Pi.
When young people learn to #code, they can solve world problems and help their communities. Thank you to so many partners that continue to work tirelessly to fulfill our shared vision including:
Watch Sandra O’Neill on Pizarrón 52, a segment of Telemundo 52, report on laptops donated to Think Together students in Southeast Los Angeles to keep kids learning #afterschool and through the #Pandemic. Thank you for shedding light into the important work that is being done! #STEM #backtoschool #community

A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD
Across the United States and the World, there is a growing sense of renewed energy and direction as we shake off the constraints of the past several years and re-think how we can find solutions to educating young people in the 21st century. COVID-19 brought with it opportunities to explore the power of online learning and exposed glaring discrepancies in access to the tools needed to compete in a computer-driven society.
Broadcom Foundation is exploring innovative ways to advance STEM and create opportunity by promoting creative online learning and championing equitable access to STEM education for all students. Over the next few years, it will be working alongside the Raspberry Pi Foundation to establish Code Clubs in classrooms and afterschool programs, tapping the expansive free resources of our partner.
The foundation remains deeply committed to science fairs as an important community asset, and currently supports fifty fairs throughout the United States as well as programs in India and Malaysia. Science fairs offer an opportunity for growth and self-expression by children who are curious about the world and enjoy creating. Broadcom Coding with Commitment celebrates these traits by amplifying the intersection between science and computational thinking as the 21st century route to sustainability.
As a member of the STEM Funders Network and supporter of STEM Ecosystems, Broadcom Foundation is honored to work alongside dedicated STEM professionals in classes and afterschool programs who are committed to giving the next generation the tools they need to realize their dreams and aspirations as young scientists, engineers and innovators.
