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 info@zandoli.org.

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.

Zandoli Welcomes Angel Regis Felix!! Women in STEM on Board!

Angel_Regis_Felix

Zandoli International Foundation welcomes Angel Regis Felix on board this February!

Angel works as a telecom design engineer at a telecommunications firm in Pennsylvania.  She is the current President of Women Entrepreneurs of America, Philadelphia Chapter and their International Ambassador.  As the editor-in-chief of the FACES of WEA magazine her expansive capacity and national reach made it inevitable to appoint her as Director of Women’s Empowerment & Human Development and the Director of Zandoli STEM Council.

Mrs. Felix has been an advocate for education and empowerment in the Caribbean community for years.  She now serves as the Vice President of the Caribbean Culture Commission.  CCC’s main mission is to provide the ‘One Voice’ initiative for the Caribbean community by providing resources such as workshops and consultations on immigration and health care.  We are looking to cross pollinate with them on upcoming agendas including education counselling, voter registration, and export of local goods.

Angel and Director of Technology Corey Desir will work together to forward Zandoli’s ZTech agenda to include Caribbean women and girls in STEM.

Zandoli – “What advice do you have for young people today?”

Angel Regis Felix – “You don’t have to be the ra ra person all the time to make a difference, just be about your purpose. When you are about your purpose, everything else will fall in place. I’m just doing me and being about my purpose.  All this irrelevant white noise is exactly that. Irrelevant.”

We are so honored to have her on #TeamZandoli and are looking forward to forging ahead bright horizons in the field of technology.
