SPREADING THE OPPORTUNITY OF COMPUTER SCIENCE WITH THE LATINO COMMUNITY
LATINOS IN CODING
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
Doing What’s Needed
Most of our efforts pertaining to this program involve studying new approaches and developing innovative ways to implement them. Latinos in Coding was founded by educators that understand that not only do we need to expose our community and culture to the world and opportunity in Computer Science, but also must do work to shift our mindsets to understand that Latino's too can be giants of industry in Computer Science! Whether that be a software designer/developer, python coder, App developer, Hardware Engineer, Web Developer, a curious kid into Virtual Reality, or an educator trying to show your kids coding, we can all be Coders. At Latinos in Coding, we offer an array of educational workshops, camps, Professional Development for education and organization, motivational programs for inner city learners and much more. Please contact us for more information.
KNOWLEDGE IS POWER WHEN APPLIED
Empowering Latinos Around the World
We see the growing need to expose our Latino communities to the notion that there is a place for our people in the space of computer science. We are able to learn about the world of coding and begin to create worlds of opportunities for our culture and community to spear into a digital future. We look to motivate and empower our youth to explore careers and

The Metaverse is here!
What is the Metaverse?
The metaverse is a digital landscape that participants can use to build their own virtual environments. It’s also a space for users around the world to connect in a more human way than other methods.
The metaverse presents a brilliant method of virtually interacting with others all around the world. Anyone, anywhere can put on a virtual reality headset or utilize their web browser to log in to a virtual space and communicate with others face-to-face.
It’s best to think of the metaverse as a virtual recreation of the real world, one that users and developers can customize to their heart's content, building anything from a metaverse school to virtual sports arenas on properties that they own. And in a world that’s becoming geographically divided due to pandemics and other disasters, it represents a way for families and friends to interact in ways unlike anything seen before.
Teaching and Learning in the Metaverse
Opportunities for EDU
Students and teachers alike can meet up in the digital space via their virtual reality headsets regardless of their real-life location. Such functionality can lead to enhanced education for those willing to seek it.
Create Custom Learning Environments
Teachers can build virtual landscapes based on their lesson plans, enhancing and immersing a child’s learning with experience as opposed to being on a zoom with no interaction.
At any point, desks and chairs can give way to an in-person recreation of a historical landmark. Students can explore as they wish, asking questions and supporting their learning with first-person experiences. No longer will inquiring children have to sit bored in a sterile classroom. Instead, they can get excited about learning, thanks to the power of virtual worlds.
