Free Radical Labs is happy to continue our working partnership with Black Girls Code. So much so, that we will be teaching a class using the Lego Mindstorm NXT platform on November 14 at Georgia Tech. If you have a girl between the ages of 7 and 17, I would like for you to seriously think about investing $35 in their future.
I have been a vocal proponent of the mission of Black Girls Code in the past, despite the ignorant and unfounded criticism the organization receives because of the name. So, for the millionth time, I would like to remind everyone that girls of every color, height, shape ... whatever are encouraged to attend the Expo. We share in the mission of STEM education and I still cannot find any issues with targeting groups that are disproportionately underrepresented in industry.
