Voice is Power initiative for coding and music education

Techstination feature for Monday, February 15, 2021

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Amazon has teamed up with Georgia Tech and Pharrell Williams…on an initiative called Your Voice is Power.   The idea is to teach middle and high school students coding…through music…and also teach the importance of racial justice.   At Georgia Tech, Dr. Roxanne Moore says learning coding through music is assisted by software called Ear Sketch..

“Ear Sketch was designed at Georgia Tech to bring together music in a really authentic way …really cool music like Pharrell’s song Entrepreneur and these computing constructs that otherwise might seem kind of dry to middle and high school audiences.”

Kids use coding to remix the music…and can compete for prizes as well.      Find more info at www.amazonfutureengineer.com/yourvoiceispower.
