Spread Code the Brooklyn Way

Presenter

Momo Akade, a Brooklyn-native, former teacher and lifelong maker, is the founder of Gigabryte, a platform that introduces kids to programming through wearable electronics. She created GigaBryte to help close the racial and ethnic divide in the field of computing. Momo was lucky enough to grow up in Brooklyn in the 80s and 90s, when Hip Hop music and fashion exploded on the scene. In this presentation, she'll pay homage to the MCs, DJs, graffiti artists, and break dancers who shaped her early identity as a maker, as well as to the sneakerhead kids she taught who inspired her to develop new pathways into STEAM.
