Techstination feature for Tuesday, March 28, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.    Encouraging young people, especially girls, to learn how to code is pretty important these days.   And actor/comedian Amy Poehler takes it very seriously.   With a smile of course.   Maggie Chieffo, the GM and Editor in Chief at Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls….says a partnership with LenovoGameState.com and Girls Who Code….aims to get more young people coding….

“Code is in everything,  STEAM and STEM is in every career that’s coming up, every career that’s out there whether you want to solve issues related to health,  whether you want to be in technology, whether you want to be in art, whether you want to combine all of these disciplines and make wearable technology.”

The LenovoGameState.com site this week is giving kids a chance to win prizes and even a scholarship while they play and learn to code.  And it’s free.  Our full interview is online.
