This is good, especially the NBA player and Will.I.Am promoting coding. I have recently become involved in the FIRST Robotics program and LinkedIn’s FIRST group recently had some discussion of why more celebrities don’t promote STEM education. The idea was that students and parents might pay attention if an actor, singer, or athlete is promoting STEM.
I doubt that we are close to putting coding classes in the standard curriculum but I hope that I’m wrong.
By the way, Will.I.Am did a great television special a year ago to promote the FIRST Robotics program. He’s become a real champion for the “geekier” side of education.
