BOSTON – On the evening of Wednesday, July 28, iRobot and the Boston Red Sox will honor five organizations from the Boston-area – including Margie Rosario, co-founder of Framingham-based Discovering Hidden Gems – in a pre-game ceremony for their leadership and advocacy in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education.
In partnership with iRobot, these organizations are providing resources for historically underrepresented students in diverse communities to learn coding and robotics, laying a foundation for students to pursue a STEM career.
