Modern Figures Podcast

Modern Figures Podcast Logo

Understanding computer science and its place in the modern world, humanity, culture, addressing institutional bias, and striving towards both equality and equity to truly make CS for All! This was what I learned from attending the Summer of CS by the Sacramento Office of Education and CSTA (Computer Science Teachers Association) week-long professional development on the free Exploring Computer Science curriculum. Throughout the week I began to understand that we can teach computer science in a more meaningful way than I previously thought about it.

Modern Figures Podcast is elevating the voices of Black women in computing.

During the week my fellow colleagues shared resources and recommended podcasts to continue our pursuit of CS for All. In this vision was recommended The Modern Figures Podcast that is elevating the voices of Black women in computing. The Modern Figures Podcast is a production of The Institute for African-American Mentoring in Computing Sciences (iAAMCS) in collaboration with the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT). The show’s episodes feature Black women in computing who share their stories and perspectives on technical, societal, and personal topics. The podcast is a great addition to any computer science class and geared towards teachers, high school and college students alike.
