Previous Projects

Vision Ed, Inc

VEI developed Ohmwork through a grant from the MacArthur Foundation. Ohmwork was designed to be a science-centered social network and podcast site where young people could share their do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. They could also contribute to one another's projects, customize the site, and collaborate as part of their collective digital learning. Developed by VEI, Ohmwork aspires to become an online network for DIY science.

21st Century Community Learning Centers, Round 3 (2006)

Vision Education & Media/ROBOFUN*

*VEI emerged from a need we saw to increase access to opportunities for engaging, project-based STEM learning, something our for-profit sister organization VEMNY (Vision Education & Media NY, operating as RoboFun) was already providing to many students.  As the evolution of VEI's programming and capacity have been largely shaped and tested by those of VEMNY, the following projects and achievements are also integral to VEI's identity.

Through a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF), VEMNY and partner organizations Sustainable South Bronx, New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP), and The Bronx Guild High School designed and implemented GreenFab.  Students in the program learned and applied STEM concepts through hands-on, project-based learning activities in mechanical and electrical engineering, 3D modeling, computer programming, sustainable design practice, and community advocacy.
