Project Spotlight

Town & Country Learning Center

Partner NGO

The Town and Country Village Learning Center is a community organization located in Southeast San Diego. The Learning Center provides computing facilities, space for homework and study, and various other educational, after-school activities such as cooking, dance, or gardening to children and young adults who live there.

Mission Statement

Students work with the Learning Center at the Town and Country community housing complex to provide imaginative and innovative technological devices, tools, and interfaces to help children expand their horizons.


The team designed and implemented the Cyber Fun Bike and is currently working on improving the field-tested prototype. The team is also working on a homework management app, which allows the teacher to track the progress of each student.
