Let’s talk about programming for fun. Grab your Lego and robots, and let’s talk about STEM and STEAM!
As a developer, we all get frustrated occasionally when a bug messes up our schedule, and we have to dive deep into the code to find a solution.
But still, many of us keep coding in our free time as we love to do it and want to create amazing stuff.
In this episode of the Foojay Podcast, we talk to volunteers from different organizations where coding is used to inspire children to become engineers or at least learn to make good use of computers and the tools around them.
