I Met Dr. Kareem Edouard while I was in undergraduate study at Stanford and he was in his PHD program; we were both student athletes at the time from Miami and Fort Lauderdale Florida. He showed me and taught me many things regarding wholistic well living; and he also taught me and gifted me with my first long board. I am excited to share this Youth Empowerment STREAMMM work, and the opportunity for the youth to have access to some amazing resources that makes learning cool, and spending time with peers fun and exciting. Dr. Edouard has always been passionate about giving back to the underserved communities and has always been a vocal leader in the community that leveraged his passion and skills in technology to expose and provide opportunities for those less fortunate.
One of your goals is motivating students of color to pursue STEM. How do you think ‘Work It Out Wombats!’ can plant that seed?
“The design of the show is really providing a creative approach to look at STEM, but particularly computational thinking and ideas. Computational thinking really is about problem-solving, and engaging in problem-solving is using computer science principles. Those can be complicated on the surface. But thinking about patterns and how to solve problems using patterns are very common ideas. What we do on the show is create creative fun opportunities for young people to see our primary characters, Malik, Zadie, and Zeke, try to be changemakers and solve issues that are in the Treeborhood. Fun is really the heart of the show.” -Dr. Edouard
