Connecting A Better World

Show Notes


Engineering Brightness is a FREE after-school program, started by Tracey Winey and John Howe. With volunteers, they continue to provide an environment for kids to build and work collaboratively to solve problems in order to eradicate a global problem of free access to clean light after dark, healthy indoor air quality, and access to education for youth and adults.

“Helping kids discover their power of changing the world today, using their unique talents to make a difference…Engineering Brightness was a great way to harness the power of our youth to solve global problems today. While in the Philippines, I saw that kids are the same everywhere – they have the same hopes, dreams, and desires. They just have different obstacles in front of them.” ~ Tracey Winey.

With an estimated 650 protoypes of their 3-D solar-powered lantern, John Howe talks about the importance of bringing STEM to Preston Middle School. “If kids know their work matters, you can’t stop them. We saw the application of STEM looked like ‘service’ in the community .” ~ John Howe
