Hi busy bees,
I'm back with another boss babe on the blog! Meet
Amber and I connected through the RVA boss babes network and as an educator, I just HAD to feature her amazing business, Bitcubs.
Bitcubs is "a company dedicated to introducing kids, ages 3-14, to code. We use a play-based approach to teach basic coding concepts. At the elementary school age, children are exposed to the most rudimentary concepts through physical play. Ironically, we believe that children absorb these concepts better when they are first taught off-screen. Similarly, if children learn about the zoo in the classroom and then visit the zoo, they retain more information than going straight to the zoo. We've known this for decades, but for some reason, the same rationale is not always applied to computer science. At the early ages of 3-10, children in our program are not expected to type code onto a computer. They are building the fundamentals to better prepare them for taking more advanced programming classes. Children can be taught about loops, functions, and conditional statements by relating these concepts to material that they already know."
Isn't that amazing?
Let's get started!
Tell us about your responsibilities as a boss babe!
What routines do you have to keep you on task, and productive?
What keeps you motivated?
What are your favorite tools to stay productive and organized?
What do you say to people who look at you and think, "I just don't know how she does it all!"
How do you maintain a positive work/life balance?!
What advice do you have for other female entrepreneurs?
Isn't Amber amazing? I had so many goosebumps while reading her responses and creating this blog post. Her WHY is so strong, and the love she has for her family is so evident.
As an educator, I am continuing to work on building up my students, especially in Math and Science. I am making more of an effort to prioritize technology skills and we do a week of code in the spring, where students learn these concepts. Computer Science is our future and I am so excited about what bitcubs is doing for children.
