About this event

It's no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has changed our way of life. Add to that the unrest that our country is experiencing as a result of the increase in racially-motivated murders that have recently occurred across the U.S. and you have a recipe for a volatile economic climate.  Many companies have had to learn to do business differently, some have not survived. 

Fortunately, there are companies, like Tinker and Fiddle, who have discovered resiliency in the midst of, and in spite of current conditions. Tinker & Fiddle is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education company that encourages youth to learn and apply technology through creative exploration and problem-solving. They host STEAM programming for youth ages 8-15 and design curriculum for grade levels K-12.  

During this season of enforced isolation and social distancing, Tinker and Fiddle have successfully pivoted to offer their programming virtually, which has had a revitalizing effect and enables them to expand their programming to youth as far away as Africa, creating access to customers that were previously unreachable. 

Join us for a timely conversation that explores the underrepresentation of minorities and women in technology in general, and STEAM fields in particular, and how Tinker and Fiddle's mission increases opportunities to provide STEAM programming for underrepresented youth.


This is an #SGVirtual event - please RSVP to receive access.
