The ceremonial ribbon was cut at the Elings Center for Engineering Education in Galeta California on October 2, 2011. The Change Happens Meeting Room is part of this state of the art STEM education facility, built to accommodate the expanding Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy .
Amir Abo-Shaeer, founder and director of the DPEA said, "The new facility will give the Engineering Academy the equipment and space to make four-year project-based education a reality." Mr. Abo-Shaeer was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2010 for his work with the DPEA and their competitive Robotics Team 1717.
The Change Happens Foundation is very pleased to support the Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy. With DPEA addressing both of Change Happens Foundation's targets of science and education in one public facility, we feel doubly rewarded for assisting in this project.
