Jeff Bezos’ Robotics Program

The future for robotics program in Nashville looks bright as they get a financial boost from the richest man himself. The Amazon Future Engineer program will help support 24 schools with 10,000 dollars each. The money will be allotted to the expansion of computer education system whether it would be for the acquisition of high-technology equipment or other things.

Bezos explained his actions to a crowd of students:

“I’m an inventor, I like to think of myself as an inventor. I started at a really young age. I used to invent all kinds of things, like burglar alarms to keep brother and sister out of my bedroom. I encourage all of you to think of yourselves as inventors. The future is about invention. … If you have an education in engineering, science, math, robotics and computer science, you’re really well positioned for that future.”

In this age of technology, the Amazon CEO is right that we should invest more in tech-related jobs. This is a booming industry and if we want to be successful, then we should make smart decisions in our life.

Other Charity Works from Jeff Bezos

In 2018, Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie Bezos were at the top of the list for biggest philanthropists. According to The Chronicle of Philanthropy, the couple has donated more than anyone else in the world. They have given more than 2 billion for a non-profit organization that supports homeless people. They were able to do this with the formation of their project called “Bezos Day One Fund.”

It was formed back in September 2018 and its goal is to help as many people as they can reach. Before their divorce, the couple was also able to donate 10 million dollars to With Honor. It is a non-partisan group which supports American US veterans to get elected and have a representation in the congress.
