Thank you to ASB Online Academy for funding a Fire Tech Camper!

I get letters from young people, parents, and teachers across London, enquiring about scholarships to Fire Tech Camp.  I currently have a waiting list for young people who are low on funds, but big on enthusiasm to start creating with technology. Fire Tech Camp has self-funded a number of scholarships this year, but we need help to meet our goal of offering financial support to 10% of our attendees.

We are running an innovative programme, providing all equipment, hosted at London’s top technical university, taught by skilled tutors – we have kept prices as low as possible and we think that our camps are great value but we recognise that not everyone can manage the cost. We are just beginning to reach out to corporates and foundations to ask for their help funding scholarships, and I am delighted to share that ASB Online Academy is providing our first grant-funded scholarship, allowing one London young person to start creating technology this summer!

From ASB Online Academy: The ASB Online Academy is an online learning platform founded with a mission to provide an effective, accessible, anytime, anywhere online learning environment that encourages collaboration and a desire to develop 21st century skills that support lifelong learning. We offer three strands of learning: Adult, Professional and Student Learning. Courses are open to participants worldwide, 100% online, fully facilitated and class sizes limited to 15. Courses are designed around discussions and hands-on activities with emphasis on interactive, collaborative learning integrating Web 2.0 tools. We are proud to announce our first sponsorship of a place for one young person to attend Fire Tech Camp this summer on the Mobile App Development course. We are proud to support Fire Tech’s goal to offer scholarships for 10% of their enrolees by working with corporate and educational partners. 

Please take a moment to have a look at their website and to see the amazing work that ASB Online Academy is doing!  We are delighted to be working with them and look forward to building a long term relationship with ASB Online Academy going forward.  Heartfelt thanks for your generous grant!
