Onramp team participating in community improvement challenge

Boise State’s Onramp team marked the recent Martin Luther King Day by creating ongoing challenges to engage community partners, K-12 educators, and students in meaningful dialogue and service throughout Idaho. It’s all part of a challenge set by Bernice King, daughter of Martin Luther King and CEO of the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change.

Onramp is a joint program of several departments at Boise State, other institutions of higher learning, and Appleā€™s Community Education Initiatives team to teach coding skills to K-12 teachers and library staff so they can share what they learn with their students in economically challenged schools across Southern Idaho.

Boise State’s Onramp team includes Peter Risse, associate dean of extended studies, Mark Woychick, director of programs in the College of Innovation & Design, Terra Feast, K-12 professional development coordinator and Onramp program coordinator, and John Kiser, Onramp program resource coordinator.
