Arta Šehu Zaimi

suosnivačica, jCoders & Labbox

Svakom je potreban neko ko će reći da je nešto moguće uraditi. Pomoću jCoders-a, mi imamo posebnu inicijativu da ohrabrimo mlade devojke da se uključe (putem tehnologije). Radila sam prezentaciju u jednoj od škola o jCoders-ima, a grupa koja se registrovala pokazala je da je bilo 80% devojčica a 20% dečaka. Uglavnom, angažovano je oko 70 do 90% dečaka. Zanimljivo je videti baš te efekte, samo zato što su me (devojčice) videle tamo.

About Arta

In 2015, Arta Shehu Zaimi was searching for an after school program for her three children that was centered around technology. When her search returned no results, Shehu Zaimi leaned on her background as a computer engineer and decided to start her own. She co-founded jCoders with her sister, Fiona, with the goal of teaching kids to use technology to problem solve in creative ways. The program currently serves more than 1,000 students, and has expanded to include the development of Labbox, an electronic engineering toy for kids.
