About Neologix Engineering Labs
Neologix was imagined by Jeadi Vilchis while he was a high school student at Oakland High School. He thought of the name while dreaming of learning Latin, thinking it meant, "New way of thinking." That is exactly the focus of his mission... To cultivate a new way of thinking for people, especially girls and people of color, by encouraging them to think in fresh, expansive ways.
Some of his makerspace/engineering students have gone on to study at Engineering and Architecture at prestigious universities such as Carnegie Mellon, UC Berkeley and UC Davis. When he taught college courses in IT/Computer Tech at Year Up, his alumni have gone on to work full time at Google, Apple, Facebook, and Salesforce.
