Reported by Liku Zelleke

On July 24, four girls – N’Dea Jackson, Adia-Simone Rhoden, Marissa Rivera and Autumn Noel – were awarded $2,000 as winners of the Black Girls Code Hackathon.

Their winning creation was Mana, an app that allows students to host virtual study sessions, share notes and catch up on missed assignments if a student were absent. It also allows students the use of study tools like flashcards and even has a break-time alarm in case they get too immersed in their work.

Black Girls Code Hackathon is an event, held over three days, in which girls between the ages of 12 and 17 take part and try to solve problems by building apps. In the recent event, 16 teams of girls were given an assignment to create apps that were focused around “project humanity” and “social justice.”

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
