Bob Lord Moderates Panel for Students Interested in Tech

As coding becomes an increasingly-important literacy, AOL is committed to helping students in our communities gain access to career exploration in the tech and engineering fields.

Last week, Bob Lord, CEO of AOL Platforms, moderated a panel discussion at the AOL NY office for a group of 35 8th-grade students from The Eagle Academy. As part of AOL's ongoing Building Blocks of Success program, our office strives to partner with local NYC schools and community organizations to give students the opportunity to learn about career opportunities in tech and engineering. To date, AOL has hosted 260 students in the NYC office in partnership with organizations like All Star Code, Girls Who Code, Citizen Schools, Mentoring USA, and Step Up Women's Network.

Our program included a behind the scenes tour of the AOL studio, a panel discussion moderated by Bob Lord, and an interactive tech activity to give the students the opportunity to work one-on-one with AOL engineers.

AOL engineers worked with small groups of students to help them understand the fundamental thought process that goes into writing code. The goal of the 'Be The Robot' activity is to help the students understand the concepts behind coding – with the hope of sparking their interest in and encouraging motivation to learn different coding languages.
