Bianca Gandolfo is designing a comprehensive programming course for underpriveleged women in Peru.
“I’m designing the whole curriculum for the six month program,” Gandolfo explains. “They had a pilot program, but they did the curriculum kind of on the fly.”
The program faces challenges unique to working with an economically disadvantaged population. Almost none of the students are expected to have internet access at home. To help alleviate some of the issues this creates, Gandolfo is designing the curriculum to be doable offline, whenever possible.
Hack Reactor is supporting Gandolfo in her efforts by having Scott Moss, our resident Angular expert, work with Gandolfo on a weekly basis to help design that part of the curriculum.
“I’m just in disbelief that I’m able to do this,” Gandolfo exclaims, “because it’s like a combination of all my values and goals wrapped into one. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Hack Reactor.”
