Baker, La. (BRProud) – Baton Rouge STEM (BRSTEM) is hosting a computer coding workshop for youth in the City of Baker and surrounding communities.

BRSTEM established a partnership with the City of Baker earlier this year to hold a number of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) workshops at the city’s Workforce Development Center. BRSTEM, launched in August 2019, is working in partnership with the City of Baker and Mayor Darnell Waites to utilize the City of Baker Workforce Development Center as a hub for STEM programming for the town north of Baton Rouge.

“Individuals working in STEM professions help to build a thriving City of Baker years ago. We are committed to ensuring that the next generation can take advantage of these opportunities and are prepared to utilize STEM-based learning to create an even brighter future for Baker,” stated Mayor Waites earlier this year.

BRSTEM’s computer coding workshop, Intro to Coding, will provide students in grade K-12 with the opportunity to be introduced to basic concepts of computer coding. Students will also have the opportunity to complete their own projects.

The workshop will be held Saturday, September 3rd from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. at the City of Baker Workforce Development Center, 3262 Baker Boulevard.

Families interested in attending must register prior to September 1st. Registration is available online at www.batonrougestem.org or by calling 225-286-7225.
