We are excited to announce that Wikid GRLLs — one of the 2012-2013 FIA-Deutsch Seed Grant Competition winners — is receiving funding from Wayne State University in fall 2015 to continue their important work.
We are very happy to learn that Wayne State University and the WSU College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts support our Wikid GRRLs project and its associated research with grants. They will pay for transportation for teachers in our program to go and teach middle and high school girls online skills in Detroit Public Schools. They will also be used to purchase supplies for participants — to show them that they are appreciated and recognized in their efforts to navigate the wiki world. We are looking forward to launching our curriculum in five Detroit Public Schools this fall.
