To celebrate the start of Black History Month, Afrori Books bookstore in Brighton is kicking off with a history extravaganza. Denhue will be doing a fun and interactive reading from a part of our STEM Leaders: Black inventors and innovators who changed the world book, followed by two creative activities related to two inventors from the book. You will also be able to buy a signed copy of the book.
There will be crafts, games, authors sharing their fun history stories and prizes.
There will be tea and coffee for the adults and snacks for the children will be served free throughout the event.
This week is National Coding Week here in the UK and we often get asked by parents how to get their kids into coding. There are many benefits of coding for kids, including improving their; logical thinking, problem solving skills, resilience and their maths skills. Natalie is a coder/developer, so below are her 3 tips to get your kids started with coding.
Black History Month is only a few weeks away (where is the time going? It will be Christmas soon, eek!) Our STEM Leaders: Black inventors and innovators who changed the world book would be a great resource. We all know schools will not be teaching children about these amazing people. So it’s for us all to do this at home.
STEM Leaders will introduce children to important Black inventors and innovators who changed the world. This vibrantly illustrated book is a stimulating reference source; it is educational and includes; Q&A’s, useful links, fun facts and activities to get children started with STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) experiments. You can buy the book here.
We’re so excited about this book. We both work in the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) industry and we don’t see many people that look like us. So we want to inspire the next generation to embrace STEM subjects. An industry which creates the inventors, innovators and leaders of tomorrow. You can buy the book here.
