Coding w/ Baba J
About Coding With Baba J
This curriculum is part of the BlkRobot Project’s aim to create an environment where technology is not considered a special privilege for Black students or centered solely on video games and cellphones. At the onset of the pandemic, when classes moved online, our weekend STEM classes were forced to stop and we wanted to develop a long term solution that allowed me to continue to educate students. We decided to focus on coding, and the “Coding with Baba J” show was born.
We firmly believe that 21st century education is experiential, and coding is a core skill needed for our youth as they will be entering a workforce where automation could remove up to 375 million jobs. This project is part of a series of classes that we am building up, and we are thankful those who have provided assistance.
