William Wells, Executive Director of aSTEAM Village (and NEXT Steps’ first SIP Source Center) has been piloting Community On Demand™ since 2019.
Thanks to aSTEAM Village, we were able to host our largest play date to date — 100 students and their teachers. Within 90 minutes, we were able to take them through the entire STEAM Investigative Process where they actually presented to their teachers, City representatives, university professors and nonprofit organizations realistic impact solutions that addressed, reduced and could possibly eliminate some of the negative socio-economic impact their city was facing.
We also participated in aSTEAM Village’s new broadband and fiber initiative called Digital KC Now. We were interviewed as part of their Village of Geniuses DocuShort by Mac Lethal.
