PRESS RELEASE – Zandoli International Foundation launched Zandoli STEM Incubator last year in an effort to provide free STEM education to communities that may have not had the opportunity to participate in these programs otherwise.
On Saturday, April 1st, ZIF sent all students who signed up last year, the prerequisites to begin the first batch.
If you signed up for the Zandoli STEM Incubator last year, coursework has been emailed to all who registered. If you signed up and did not receive an email with your first course, please message [email protected].
If you did not get a chance to sign up last year and would like to participate, please complete the form on this page.
While participants are no longer required to live in Saint Lucia, or Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, the other requirements remain the same.
- Access to a computer.
- Strength in Mathematics.
- Intense desire to succeed.
- Deep sense of purpose.
- Attend training near Raleigh/Durham or Castries, Saint Lucia. (NO LONGER REQUIRED. ALL COURSES HAVE BEEN OPTIMIZED FOR ONLINE LEARNING).
- At least 18 years of age, having completed high school or the equivalent.
- 3 references from people in your community (no relatives).
Due to the rigorous nature of the coursework and changes in the technology industry, we require all candidates to complete and pass a pre-requisite course. The course: Big Data & Artificial Intelligence BDAi-101 will take approximate 6 hours to complete; although, you can complete it faster, or take longer if needed.
No penalties will arise from taking extra time; however, to be considered for continuation in the program, it is advised that students complete BDAi-101 by April 30, 2017. After you complete the program, a career coach from Zandoli will be in touch with you regarding the educational path you would like to choose. Entry into all paths requires a passing grade of 70% in BDAi-101 to move on to the core curriculum.
Please sign up to take the free prerequisite course BDAi-101 here:
We thank you for your interest in STEM education with Zandoli and look forward to helping you reach success towards this effort.
