Pixley Connect, a project of the Pixley Foundation in partnership with the Great Valley Center and AT&T Foundation, is an effort to narrow the digital divide in rural California. This project brings telecommunication access, education and training to the underserved, predominantly Spanish-speaking community of Pixley, California.
Pixley Connect supports youth development through the engagement of youth in technology. Pixley Connect established a robotics team to offer youth an interactive and fun opportunity to learn about science, engineering and problem solving. The Pixley robotics team consists of 18 youth, between the ages of 9 and 14, who take part in practice sessions weekly and will participate in regional competitions.
