Oracle Academy team members Lisa Palombo, Bruce Regittko, and Hanna Kosbab participated in the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) Education Outreach Day on May 16, 2024.  

Hundreds of students from around Los Angeles County attended the ISEF Education Outreach Day event, and many were able to visit the Oracle Academy booth to learn about Java coding using the Finch Robots. The Oracle Academy team also spent time connecting with educators to share information about the Oracle Academy mission and technology education resources offered, for free, through membership.

Of her experience, Lisa Palombo said,

It was a wonderful experience participating in the Regeneron ISEF conference in Los Angeles as an Education Outreach Day exhibitor. The students were very excited and engaged playing with, and learning about, our Finch robots powered by Java programming. We at Oracle Academy were happy to showcase our tools and technology as we continue to play a vital role in helping educators and their students become technology innovators and leaders.

We were pleased to partner with ISEF to attend and sponsor this event to help inspire the next generation of students engage in technology in an exciting way. Oracle Academy continues to work with educators and partners to engage, inspire, and prepare students to become innovators and leaders of the future. Bruce Regittko summed up the experience, saying, “It gives me hope for the future to see these young people so eager to learn more about programming and robotics, as well as engineering and science in general.”
