Aerospace Engineer Aisha Bowe Develops 'Lingo' Coding Kit For At-Home Learning

For some parents, at-home learning has proven to be more of a headache than a help. To alleviate some of the stress, D.C. aerospace engineer Aisha Bowe —and a diverse team of engineers led by Danielle Regis — developed a coding kit to engage curious kids . According to WTOP News , Bowe’s brainchild, Lingo , is an at-home, hands-on experience that allows kids ages 13 and up to learn the fundamentals of hardware and software design. “The idea of Lingo is to make technology accessible for all by introducing students to software, hardware and engineering concepts in a really easily approachable way,” said Bowe, who previously worked at NASA. “So, the focus is on the lesson and the excitement around building the backup sensor and less on some of the technology fundamentals, which will come later.” Lingo consists of detailed instructions and step-by-step videos that will keep STEM-loving kids occupied for hours. For example, the first lesson teaches kids how to build a backup sensor in...
