The Innovation Squad

Twice a week for 8 weeks, The Innovation Squad – a collaboration between Mack-Cali Realty Corporation, The Macallan Group, and the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County –  will give kids ages 8- to 12-year-olds from Hoboken and Jersey City the opportunity to learn STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), teamwork, and life skills.

Read their press release here:

The Innovation Squad is led by mentors who bring unique backgrounds of creative and technical expertise and experience. The program, funded by Mack-Cali, accommodates 12 children per session. Throughout the course, the children, along with their mentors, will learn to operate robots, build a Web page, design a logo, learn about branding, create a storyboard and script, and produce a movie.

The Boys & Girls Clubs’ Innovation Squad Feature Film will be a showcase event at the end of the program and give the students the opportunity to present their work. This event, in May/June, will bring together students, staff, parents, and sponsors and will be open to the media.

We're inspired!
