Schendy Kernizan has already accomplished a lot at 32 years old. He's the co-director of the Self-Assembly Lab at MIT after all. Still, he's worried about the children in his hometown of Lasserre, Haiti. Most of the children there, about 80 percent, don't attend school because it is too expensive for their families.

So in order to help combat this problem, Kernizan has set up a GoFundMe page to help raise school funds that the local government can't cover. The more children that receive the proper education, the brighter the future will look for the people of Haiti.
