Disclaimer: The Rotary Club and Zandoli International Foundation made this donation in 2016 and these photos were lost in the shuffle!
We recently found them and would like to say again, a huge thank you to Cary-Kildaire Rotary Club for collaborating with us on this effort.

Zandoli recently established a robotics department led by tech startup, NexMetric. Zandoli and NexMetric are committed to contributing in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence. Our global partners in Asia, Technavids are working at a remarkable pace and in the United States we are doing everything we can to keep up! July 13, 2017, over 200 individuals came to a test center in Pune, India to take an online assessment for 3 internship spots with a NexMetric project facilitated by Zandoli Director of Business Solutions for Robotics, and NexMetric Co-Founder, Jameel Shaik.
NexMetric is working to provide courses in robotics and advanced artificial intelligence solutions such as robots and apps. The website is scheduled to launch towards the end of July.

At Zandoli and Caribbean Committee Against Sex Crimes, we support safety education for sexual assault awareness. For the month of April, we will share materials relating to prevention and learning materials from our resource network.
We read through STOP IT NOW’s TIP SHEET: Everyday Actions to Keep Kids Safe and provided a basic summary for families. This tip sheet is not just for victims, but for all family members to promote prevention. Talking with your family and children educates them and like the old adage goes “Prevention is better than cure.” That simply means that it is easier to prevent something than having to undo the pain and trauma of having to “fix” or “heal”.
Determine clear boundaries and guidelines.
- All family members have a right to privacy when dressing, bathing, sleeping, etc… without being watched, touched or violated in uncomfortable ways.
- If the child does not feel like kissing a relative, even it’s Grandma, allow the child to shake hands, respecting the child’s body.
- Watch for inappropriate behavior in adults or older children.
- Practice speaking about awkward things and saying uncomfortable or embarrassing words out loud and confronting those behaviors.
- Report anything you suspect as sexual abuse.
- Respect their privacy when they say “NO!” to touch that they are not happy with.
- Have a safety plan
- Make a list of people to report abuse or signs of abuse to

Zandoli International Foundation launched Zandoli STEM Incubator last year in an effort to provide free STEM education to communities that may have not had the opportunity to participate in these programs otherwise. On Saturday, April 1st, ZIF sent all students who signed up last year, the prerequisites to begin the first batch.
If you signed up for the Zandoli STEM Incubator last year, coursework has been emailed to all who registered. If you signed up and did not receive an email with your first course, please message firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you did not get a chance to sign up last year and would like to participate, please complete the form on this page.
While participants are no longer required to live in Saint Lucia, or Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, the other requirements remain the same.
1. Access to a computer.
2. Strength in Mathematics.
3. Intense desire to succeed.
5. Deep sense of purpose.
6. Attend training near Raleigh/Durham or Castries, Saint Lucia. (NO LONGER REQUIRED. ALL COURSES HAVE BEEN OPTIMIZED FOR ONLINE LEARNING).
7. At least 18 years of age, having completed high school or the equivalent.
8. 3 references from people in your community (no relatives).
Due to the rigorous nature of the coursework and changes in the technology industry, we require all candidates to complete and pass a pre-requisite course. The course: Big Data & Artificial Intelligence BDAi-101
will take approximate 6 hours to complete; although, you can complete it faster, or take longer if needed. No penalties will arise from taking extra time; however, to be considered for continuation in the program, it is advised that students complete BDAi-101
by April 30, 2017
. After you complete the program, a career coach from Zandoli will be in touch with you regarding the educational path you would like to choose. Entry into all paths requires a passing grade of 70% in BDAi-101
to move on to the core curriculum.
Please sign up to take the free prerequisite course BDAi-101 here
We thank you for your interest in STEM education with Zandoli and look forward to helping you reach success towards this effort.
Our no-code hackathon is open to persons from all backgrounds to benefit from and contribute in analytical ways.
We invite experts in their fields to discuss trends and competition in their industries. These range from fashion to tech and even bridge philanthropy and social action. Not everyone is a data scientist and we’ve found that analytical minds and super-code skills are not always found together within the same human. Some people are natural analysts with prodigious intuitions that the math wizards and programming superheroes lack. On the other hand, brilliant foresight and world-renowned creative strategies cannot fulfill the requirements for streamlined algorithms and interactive, high-level visualizations. We allow them to come together to build upon each “hack” with expressions from several genres/outlets.
The hackathon is hosted online and is scheduled for Sunday, April 23rd from 2PM-5PM Eastern Standard Time. The event boasts “invite only”; however specific requests can be made for individuals wishing to present who have not been on the initial list. For consideration, if you have not yet received an invitation, please contact email@example.com.
Our Competitive Intelligence Hackathon is the gathering of data on relevant industry dynamics through the environmental scanning process. This exclusive event is “invite only” and we are inviting experts in their fields to discuss gaps in the market and creative ways they can make contributions. If you received a special invitation to this hackathon, please prepare a 10-15 minute presentation on your subject matter. The webinar platform will be equipped to play youtube videos, slide-shows, and documents in pdf, ppt and docx format. For security reasons for high-profile invitees, the guest list will not be available publicly. All presentations are due Sunday, April 16th for consideration.
Your ‘Presentation Outline’ should follow these guidelines:

The Democratic Republic of Congo, one of the resource-richest nations in the world, has been under militant attack in recent months. As reported by Al Jazeera News, the Kamwina Nsapu militia killed 40 policemen by decapitating them on Saturday, sparing 6 others who spoke their native language.
The French government condemned the acts of violence in DRC and called for immediate action in a statement on their website.
The United Nations indicates that the group has killed over 400 people since August 2016. 10 mass graves were found in the crisis-torn region of Kasai. Kasai is just a two-hour flight from Kinshasa, DRC’s capital city and metropolis. The UN states that there are close to 19,000 troops deployed in Congo, with 100 in Kasai.
