Computer programming is a ubiquitous part of modern life; childhood education on the topic is sadly less so. When Kristy Sevy’s eldest daughter took an interest in all things STEM, Sevy tried to find learning products that would enable her to engage her daughter in the subjects she loves. “I didn’t find stuff out there that I wasn’t intimidated by,” she says. Sevy and her brother, Kyle Muir, decided that they would do something about this lack of approachable electronics education platforms for children.

The end result is a prototype dubbed FUZE: a circuit board with magnetic read switches and LEDs that young people can program to display different patterns and sequences. The prototype included glasses that alter the lights, revealing images like smiley faces and stars. “The toy doubles as an education platform,” says Muir, showing how the circuit board slots into a clear, plastic frisbee. “By the end of it, kids and teachers [are] learning real code, and they can either code or put it up in their frisbee and go play.”

Educators, we need you!  To be a leader in dynamic digital skills training General Assembly has been on my radar for a while. Zubi Flyer graduates learners from logic oriented game play to block based programming and on to text based scripting in an intuitive open source development environment. We close skills gaps and I like to benchmark myself against those doing similarly great work! 

Today, Switzerland based Adecco Group announced plans to purchase New York based General Assembly for $412.5 million.  That is a BIG number!! Where and how is that kind of value created?!
