In 2019, our company accomplished a lot. We developed innovative new exhibits, explored new technologies, and advanced new hardware and software products. In fact, last year—our 20th anniversary!—was our most successful ever, and I am extremely proud of the work we did and the people at Ideum who made it happen.
Along with these accomplishments, I am glad to say that we also reached new heights in terms of community engagement and outreach.
In addition to financial contributions, Ideum donated over $75,000 in hardware to a range of local organizations working for our community. We made donations to local public and private schools, such as the Albuquerque Academy and La Cueva High School, and reached out to a diverse set of nonprofit organizations, such as Warehouse 508, the New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty, and the Sandoval Economic Alliance,
We also participated in several community educational events, such as the Big Brothers Big Sisters Discovery Festival (our fourth year in a row) and a Science-Technology Q&A with local Girl Scout troops.
Collaborating with others to make our community stronger is as important to us as our work in exhibit design and technological innovation. We plan to make 2020 another milestone year for community outreach. As the new year begins, we continue to encourage New Mexico nonprofits, schools, and government agencies to apply for our Technology for Our Community program through which we donate our multitouch touch tables and displays to organizations in need.
