Well, computer scientist/educator Emmanuel Schanzer hopes to change all that. As the brilliant mastermind behind the innovative computer program, "Bootstrap," Schanzer hopes to revolutionize the concept of learning algebra using video game development.
How unique is Schanzer's concept? Consider the story of seven-year old Zora Ball. In 2013, this cherub-faced, 1st grader became the youngest person in history to create a mobile app game! Imagine that? What's more, Zora Ball did this using Bootstrap.
In this interview, Emmanuel Schanzer explains the mystery and beauty of computer science, his wish to get more kids excited about math and computer programming and future goals for the program, Bootstrap.
