Geeking Out Kids of Color teaches computer science to kids through a cultural, gender and racial justice lens .

Presenter: Pedro Perez, Executive Director and Co-founder

At Geeking Out Kids of Color (GOKiC) we are committed to not only closing the digital literacy gap in our communities of color but to create Leader of Color in the tech arena. We do do this by bringing mentors and teachers that look like the community we serve to teach them about tech and provide them with the resources that is needed to create new projects around robotics, artificial intelligence and programming all through a critical race and gender lens.  

At GOKiC our goal isn't to teach kids to code so they can work in the tech sector and make money. Our goal is to help these kids intersect their experiences with their new skill and build new technology, that only they can create, that empowers them to interact with Tech on their own terms and strengthen their community.

We are partnering with a variety of organizations around throughout the state and are currently raising funds to open a new location at the Technology Access Foundation building in White center an unincorporated community that is the most diverse areas in King County, with 60 percent communities of color
