"In classrooms worldwide, we have been successful in cultivating a transformative experience for teens who didn't know they 'could'. We created the LINGO coding kit because we wanted to bring the same positive and enlightening experience to the home. Given the COVID-19 distancing recommendations, we hope that teens and parents will also find LINGO productive for home use as well as enable virtual camp participation," said Aisha Bowe, STEMBoard's founder, CEO and former NASA aerospace engineer.

Other benefits include:

  • Acquiring basic coding skills in a clear, fun, and engaging way

  • Learning at your own pace

  • Bridging the gap between simple electronics and real-world application

"LINGO is VERY easy to use, even for those who think they are tech challenged. LINGO enables teens to see how coding can be applied to industries like healthcare, fashion and sports. We hope that LINGO inspires more young people to create, invent and innovate in whatever interests them," said Dr. Jarvis Sulcer, former nuclear engineer and STEMBoard's VP of Education and Outreach.
