At Western Digital, we’re helping make STEAM dreams come true for the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, artists and mathematicians by partnering with the San Jose Sharks Foundation and Resource Area for Teaching (RAFT). RAFT is a Bay Area-based non-profit that provides teachers with fun and engaging supplemental lesson plans for their students, as well as activity kits, office supplies, and arts and crafts materials.
What makes someone a leader? Does it require a lifetime of experience, education and development, or is it just something a person is born with? These questions might set off an intense conversation and elicit very complex discussions. We asked our leaders from around the world for their thoughts and opinions.
Today, some of the world’s biggest data can be stored on the smallest devices. Photos, videos, music, games, TV shows, and so much more – all stored on memory cards as tiny as a person’s fingernail. It’s all thanks to two decades of technological innovation in SD™ and microSD™ cards. We’ve reached the point where people can store up to 1TB of data on today’s memory cards, compared to just 8MB in 2000 – almost a 125,000x capacity increase over the first SD cards1.
For kids growing up in East Palo Alto, a historically underserved community in the affluent Bay Area, having access to safe and enriching after-school programs has been a hurdle for many years. The city has long had to deal with challenges in the community. In recent times, though, much progress has been made. The chance to support these young students in their academic journeys struck a chord with us. It also aligned with one of our corporate pillars to support education, especially activities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
