Earlier this month, 40 Intel Ohio employees returned to the classroom, volunteering in eight schools in Franklin and Licking Counties in Central Ohio. Through Intel® Future Skills, the volunteers helped students build confidence and capacity for creative problem solving.
Nearly 300 elementary and high school students participated in hands-on Intel® Future Skills sessions facilitated by Intel Ohio employees. Students were encouraged to think differently, embrace mistakes and develop a growth mindset as they gained skills needed for the workforce of the future.
“Our students creativity came to life when Intel employees passed out Scribble Bot kits. We had the privilege of watching our students creative wheels turn into engineering brains with the support of their peers and the engineers that came to work with them,” shared Principal Wood from Huy Elementary School.
The Intel® Future Skills projects are based on the same design thinking methodology used by the world’s top innovators, and Intel has made the project guides available at no cost for educators in English and Spanish.
Additionally, the Intel Foundation matches employee volunteer hours at qualifying organizations with a $10 per hour grant, further amplifying the positive impact of our employees’ commitment to our community.
Intel has a longstanding commitment to volunteering and education. Inspiring the next generation of innovators is vital to the communities where Intel operates, including in Ohio, where we celebrated breaking ground on a new manufacturing investment in September 2022.
