Taken from their fundable website:
The Pixel Academy is a community of kids and teens that are passionate about learning 21st Century Skills. We want to give our members access to state of the art technology, from virtual reality goggles and 3D Printers to self-teaching guitars. Pixel members are able to explore and master new and relevant subjects that traditional schools aren’t able to provide like Video Game Design, 3D Printing, Arduino Programming, App Development, Film Making, Music Writing, and so much more.
Currently they are looking for space in New York City, but I think this is a great idea to have in all cities. I know a lot of cities have community centres, and I think it would be great to have centres where students can get on computers and start to learn how to program, or design using computers. They can learn the skill and the theory at highschool/college/university, but for now, just let them get their hands on the hardware/software and to peak their interest. I hope Pixel Academy hits the goal it has set out and then can report back on how well it is doing.
