The Kids Helping Kids program brought students from Broomfield’s Coyote Ridge Elementary to Crest View Elementary in Boulder last week to help with flood damage. Coyote Ridge students collected books, supplies, and other donations to help their peers at Crest View. The school was closed for about two weeks after experiencing massive flood damage in September.
A recent study by economists at CU-Boulder showed that, “high-performing foreign-born Ph.D. students improve the ‘creation of knowledge’ in U.S. universities.” CU-Boulder Professor Keith Maskus said providing entrepreneurial visas would benefit the U.S. economy and its technology industry.
