Fuse by Cardinal Health- March 2017
The Girls Who Code strives to bring high-quality computer science education to middle school girls. During the current school year, the Girls Who Code club has received tremendous support from Fuse.
“I cannot thank Fuse enough for their support of the Girls Who Code program at Davis,” said Davis media specialist Cheryl Angel. “These girls are learning valuable things about STEM and realizing the career opportunities that exist for them in STEM.”
Fuse has provided Girls Who Code students an opportunity to work on "real world" problems. During one project, the girls were put into two groups. One group designed a Pokémon Go like app to help people stay healthy by tracking exercise and eating. The second group created an app to help people remember to take their medicine.
“The enthusiasm and innovation generated during our experiences with Dublin City Schools students is phenomenal,” said Gio Hernandez, a software engineer at Fuse by Cardinal Health. “At Fuse, we strongly believe in community outreach with a mission to make a real impact on healthcare. Providing an environment for young people to be creative and energized by STEM is truly inspiring, and we’re honored to support the community in this way.”
In addition to supporting the Girls Who Code program, Fuse has also invited students throughout the District to learn about STEM. Students have participated in STEM challenges and taken tours of Fuse’s creative and innovative facility. Fuse has also held coding camps and other coding classes for our students.
“The partnership that Dublin City Schools has created with Fuse has been amazing,” said Angel. “Our students are not only learning about coding and STEM, but they are also learning about innovation and collaboration. Students are getting hands-on experience while also learning to work together to solve problems. These projects are much more than sitting in front of a computer and typing code.”
Fuse by Cardinal Health is an innovation lab that connects technology with healthcare to build the future of health and wellness. Fuse works to seek opportunities to connect and collaborate to spark creative ideas.
The partnerships the District has with local businesses is one of the key components of the Dublin Difference. Our Board of Education honors one of our local business partners at its first meeting of the month during each school year. Businesses receive this designation for their contributions to a school, support group, or the District at large.
