Meet the NASA Software Engineer Intern That’s Launched a Kid’s Book About Black Woman Engineers
To help the next generation pursue STEM, Asemota, who is now a current computer science and biology major at New York University and a Black Girls CODE technical instructor, created “Black Girls CODE the Future” — an educational coloring book that empowers women of color to pursue the tech world.
Nia Asemota is a self-taught programmer interning at NASA as a software engineer. Despite being 21 years old, Nia has many accolades behind her back. From collaborating with Black Girls CODE as a technical instructor, being a Game Design TA at the City College of New York’s free STEM Institute, to launching her own kid’s book about Black woman engineers.
