October 18, 2017 (New York, NY)
- Lenovo, (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY) NAF, and MIT App Inventor were recognized at the CSforALL Summit in St. Louis, MO this week. The 2017 CSforALL Summit is a convening of computer science educators, researchers, activists, and supporters that celebrate the progress and announce new commitments to reach the goal of access to inclusive, rigorous, and sustainable computer science education for all US students both in and out of school.

To demonstrate a joint commitment to STEM education, Lenovo and NAF announced an expansion of the Lenovo Scholar Network (LSN), now in its fourth year, including a $1 million grant from Lenovo this past May. The grant will provide select NAF academies with Lenovo technology over the next three years, extending STEM education and opportunities to more than 5,000 participating students nationwide. Additionally, the grant created the opportunity to open the Lenovo Scholar Network program to all NAF academy themes, including: finance, information technology, health sciences, hospitality and tourism, and engineering. Through this, NAF and Lenovo hope to reach more than 10,000 additional students over the next three years.

Josh Sheldon, Director of Programs for MIT App Inventor, Colleen Devery, Assistant Vice President, Strategic Initiatives and Administration for NAF, and Suzie Koonce, Community and Government Partnership Manager for Lenovo onstage at the CSforALL Summit on October 17.

'Lenovo is proud of the partnership with NAF and the contributions we're making to support young people and promote STEM education across the country,' said Rob Cato, Lenovo's Executive Director for k-12 and higher education in the United States. 'These are investments that will benefit the students, educators and technology companies like Lenovo.'

In conjunction with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) App Inventor, a project within the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL), Lenovo Scholar Network students also have the opportunity to use MIT App Inventor to develop Android mobile apps using Lenovo devices as part of an annual national app challenge.

'The App Inventor team is thrilled to continue our relationship with NAF and Lenovo. We are happy to provide opportunities for NAF's diverse community of students and teachers to use the power of mobile computing to make a difference in the world around them,' said Josh Sheldon, Director of Programs for MIT App Inventor.

New partnership benefits enable students to earn NAFTrack Certification credit, part of Lenovo's commitment as a NAFTrack Certified Hiring Partner, and expanding engagement opportunities with Lenovo, including Lenovo in the Classroom volunteer events.

NAF President, JD Hoye, said, 'We are honored to be recognized with Lenovo and MIT App Inventor for our shared commitment in providing computer science education for ALL students. These critical skills are necessary for all industries and by working to make them accessible for high school students, we can guarantee that our future leaders will be on the road to success. We thank Lenovo and MIT App Inventor for their partnership in this tremendous effort and thank the CSforALLConsortium for this phenomenal opportunity to be spotlighted, alongside organizations who are key allies in this important work.'

The CSforALL Summit is organized by the CSforALLConsortium, a collaborative community of more than 400 partner organizations, and the national hub for the Computer Science for All movement. This year's summit announced commitments from more than 100 organizations.
