The Roddenberry Foundation contributes $100,000 to the Global Learning XPRIZE Indiegogo campaign!

The Roddenberry Foundation, founded by Rod Roddenberry, son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, inspires efforts that create and expand new frontiers for the benefit of humanity. It funds innovative solutions to critical global issues in the areas of science and technology, the environment, education and humanitarian advances.

Rod creates a short video to share his passion for innovation and the Global Learning XPRIZE:

The wonderful contribution from the Roddenberry Foundation has inspired us to seek new frontiers and raise our overall goal for the rest of the 14 day campaign to $750,000.

Raising this extra money will provide an opportunity for us to take this innovative learning technology to even more kids in more parts of the world, and put further community collaboration tooling and infrastructure in place to build this global movement to end the chronic lack of literacy in the world.

We need your help!

To achieve our stretch goal of $750,000 we need your help to help spread the word and raise awareness of the campaign!
