Pixel Academy Raising Funds To Teach Kids How To Create with Technology

In New York City, the Pixel Academy is currently raising money on Fundable to help kids aged 8-18 learn how to use technology to create everything from movies to music to apps.

The school aims to raise at least $20,000 to build a center with resources that many schools cannot afford, like HD cameras and laser printers. Do you think we need more resources like this school? Check it out:

The Pixel Academy will stand out as the only after-school location that offers children and teens the ability to create films, music, games, and software applications. Catering specifically to youth ages 8 through 18 and offering access to state-of-the-art hardware and software, we will be a one-stop shop for experimenting and learning to create with technology. By providing access to advanced technology including 3D printers, laser cutters, musical instruments and recording space, HD cameras, and high-end computers, we will provide full-service spaces for the creation of anything our members can imagine.
