Help Us Expand Digital Literacy and STEAM Education

Imagine you are 11 years old, homeless, living with your mom in a shelter and attending grade school during the day. In class, you see better off kids with a phone sharing a video and laughs with classmates and possibly you. A new phone is out of reach of what your mom can afford. But you might be very interested in computers, especially if you have had fun playing video games. Where can you begin to learn how to use technology if you cannot afford technology?

You can help us significantly expand our current efforts to promote digital literacy through donations of free copies of beanz magazine to kids in at-risk communities. You can help us broaden access to STEAM education and digital literacy. Please join us and donate today!

Exposure to STEAM helps kids develop problem-solving skills, encourages creativity and collaboration, teaches technologies like coding, and helps prepare kids for the workforce and their adult lives. Please help us bring educational and inspirational STEM content to at-risk kids. We donate thousands of copies of our STEM magazine to kids in shelters, schools, and food banks. Your support can help us do even more.

And if you’re a school or group with at-risk kids and would like to apply for a donation, definitely send us an email.

“I really enjoy reading beanz, especially coding and computer science concepts, and I always look forward to getting them. Apparently, so do my lambs!”

I appreciate that it's aimed at students/children without talking down to them. The adult reading material for computer science sometimes is too much to process. beanz offers smaller doses that are more accessible.

I like the variety of topics, but also the consistency of having topics addressed repeatedly. I like that it's both hardware and software, so I can entice kids who have those interests. I like that there's a range of articles from pretty easy to harder (some are too hard for my students, but that's actually good....gives them hints that there are things to aspire to.) I look at it a few times each issue, and search back issues topics to find articles to recommend to students.
