About the Michael W. Neden Memorial Fund
The establishment of this fund honors Professor Neden’s legacy. The program Mike envisioned is proving to be highly effective in teaching children to see like designers and think like engineers. The Michael Neden Memorial Fund will provide grants to both formal and informal educational institutions to help them support Rokenbok Applied STEM Education Programs. All of us at Rokenbok Education are deeply indebted to Professor Neden for his gifts of insight, wisdom, and creativity. Thank you to the generosity of these sponsors for making this fund possible.
We believe that all children should experience, at the earliest possible moment, that they are designers and makers who can shape their own worlds. We believe that all teachers can be confident STEM mentors, guiding students in meaningful design-make-play experiences. We believe that connecting young minds to the fundamentals of technology and engineering will increase the number of students seeking STEM careers in college and beyond. Rokenbok charges for its products and training, however substantial subsidies will be available for schools and youth programs serving underserved students – those from low income households, minorities, and girls.
