We Are Teaching at the Black Girls Code Robot Expo
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.
