​Global Kids offers a citywide DLL high school program, Hack for Impact Lab, creating a space for real-world inquiry, community problem-solving advocacy, and STEM skill development.  The Lab operates like a civic design studio, supporting an array of projects, addressing one local or global challenge.  The Hack for Impact Lab introduced the “Building Tools for Emergency Preparedness and Response” curriculum, where students utilized technologies, such as Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Scratch and MIT App Inventor, to prototype solutions around information dissemination, trauma and community resource distribution for emergency preparedness and response. 

This curriculum is designed as a means for our students, many of whom were directly affected by Superstorm Sandy and other recent natural disasters across the globe, to understand the worldwide impact of such events, and how they can develop and propose solutions to ease the aftereffects.

Hack for Impact Lab usually takes place at Global Kids headquarters during the school year.  Check back here in late August 2018 to find out if Hack for Impact Lab will be offered at GK HQ for the 2018-2019 school year.
