Michael Guggenheim is a kid hero. He set up a non-profit called SPLAT (Showing People Learning And Technology) to provide technology training to young children in a homeless shelter. He’s in sixth grade.
After having a laptop free him from the frustration of dysgraphia, he wanted to allow those without access to computers the opportunity to learn important life skills. He seeks donations of computers and software to help his work in a shelter in Los Angeles. He’s aiming to provide a free laptop to his students who leave the shelter after finding homes so they can continue their learning.
