Our group formed July 22, 2016.  We started teaching kids project management skills 5 months later  (Dec. 3, 2016).  To date we’ve completed 4 Introduction to Project Management and Leadership  classes and 5 kids’ projects.  Our work is Pro Bono, however if you’d like to contribute to the kids program you can do so through our partner the MADE (Museum of  Art and  Digital Education) by clicking here.   Although our expenses are very low, the MADE allows us to have our classes at their facilities and covers our expenses which for now are very low.  The more contributions we receive the bigger projects we can do.

To learn more about our programs, see our Portfolio / Summary of Classes & Projects section and see our calendar below for information regarding upcoming classes, projects and events.

A Go Fund Me Project for Asante Africa Foundation

Free Speaker Series_Takeo Kimura: Autonomous Cars (Self Driving) -Intel/BMW Alliance @ The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment
Jun 16 @ 8:00 am – 10:00 am

Join us as we learn about how people from every walk of life use project management to manage projects in a number of different industries.

Speakers share stories about what they were like as kids, what they wanted to be when they grew up (if they knew), what they are doing now and how they got there.

Seats are first reserved for kids who have completed the Introduction to Project Management Class.

 

Next Speaker…..

Saturday, June 16, 2018 Takeo Kimura from Intel will talk to the kids about his project as a Project manager on the Self Driving Car. He will also speak about one of the project management areas (Probably Risk) for this project. This session will be from 8am to 10am at the MADE (Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment).

In addition to the Self Driving Car project, and as with all of our speakers Takei will also talk about what he was like as a child, what he wanted to be when he grew up (if he knew), what he’s doing now and how he got there.

The objectives of this class are:

  • To help our kids see how professionals are actually using the same skills and tools they are learning to  implement the project management and leadership skills they’ve learn to plan, manage and monitor their projects;
  • To see people who do and don’t look like them use the same skills they are learning and to help make those skills more relatable;
  • To help see how things that can seem so technical be relatable;
  • To learn about and see leaderships skills that will inspire them to help discover their future career path.

To register, click here

 

Bio:

Takeo is originally from Japan and moved to the US to Chicago, IL at 7 years old due to he’s parents work. Graduated from University of Wisconsin – Madison with an Electrical and Computer Engineering degree. Currently working at Intel in the Programmable Solutions Group as a Technical Program Manager, being a project manager for their Autonomous Vehicle initiatives.

Free Introduction to Project Management & Video Game Programming Class @ The Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment
Jun 23 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm

This class requires participation in all three classes: Saturdays, June 23, 30 & July 7, 2018

PJMan & The StarGazers is partnering with Oakland’s video game museum, the The MADE (Museum of Art and Digital Entertainment) https://themade.org/,/ to teach children ages 7-18 years old Introductory Project Management and leadership skills using games and drawings created with Scratch as their project/product. Scratch is a programming tool developed by MIT to teach kids to code/program video games.

Why Project Management: Children use makeshift skills to manage projects all the time. However, think how much easier it would be for both them and you (parents) if they learned skills to help organize their next book report or science project. Instead of procrastinating and trying to figure out where and how to start, you can both put more time and effort into enjoying the project. Our approach is fun and action packed to equip your child with skills they will use for the rest of their lives. Plus, many industries look for people with project management skills. Why not give them a little advantage by exposing early in a fun relevant way.

Students that complete all three classes all three days (or make up missing class) will move on to working on actuals projects. To learn more about past classes and project, visit: http://pjmanthestargazers.com/portfolio/
