Our daughters attended a week at the Miller Institute in summer 2012, learned a lot, and had a great time! Thanks to Mark Miller and team!

The Miller Institute for Learning has always made kids their top priority. They want all children to have an opportunity to learn cutting edge technology that will help them achieve success in the future. They have wonderful rapport with students and strive to make learning fun. Kids walk away feeling better about themselves and are better equipped to function in our technological world.

My son attended their summer class in 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed it. He's been into Lego robotics ever since and is in a robotics after-school program this Fall. I wish the Learning Institute would partner with local schools to make the schools' robotics programs more robust.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

getting my son interested in robotics.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

encourage them to partner with our local school, North Star Academy, to build a truly incredible robotics program.

We are always very appreciative when someone takes the time to write a few kind words about our programs. We are also happy to note that we are offering many after school programs in the Bay area, in partnership with local schools as well as cities. We are excited to share that we just learned that our team, the San Mateo County Community STEM Alliance (a partnership with Pacifica, Half Moon Bay and San Carlos as well as our colleagues at Coastside STEM) has been selected for a grant, reaching out to under-served students in several areas of the County. We would welcome the chance to collaborate with our friends in RWC, such as North Star Academy, as well.
