For the 7th year in a row, we hosted Brothers Code in partnership with Kapor Center in celebration of National Computer Science Education Week. Thanks to our generous sponsors — Kaiser Permanente, Cisco, UC Berkeley College of Engineering, Blue Shield of California, Microsoft, and CSAA Insurance Group, a AAA Insurer — more than 200 participants joined us at Merritt College for a full day of interactive tech activities facilitated by our Hidden Genius Alumni Youth Educators. We even had special guest appearances featuring Andre Iguodala, New York Times Best Selling Author and D’wayne Wiggins of Tony! Toni! Tone!.

Brothers Code 2019 was also featured on Fox 2 KTVU News!
