    Robert Small Moves Full STEAM Ahead!

    African-Canadian Author/Artist Robert Small announces the release of his first-of-a-kind-booklet “We’re Going Full STEAM Ahead”.

    This is the second installment, which focuses on making African-Canadian history relevant to the technological age while preparing youth for the future where careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) will be in high demand. It is the first ever activity book written to directly bridge the link between Black youth and technological advancement.

    About The Book
    This is a unique 16-page booklet that fuses the ingenuity the technological age demands, with traditional word games, puzzles and math problems. It contains distinctive ideas such as a math section that focuses on financial literacy, saving money and teaching youth about stock market basics. There is also an art section in tribute to Viola Desmond who fought segregation laws in Nova Scotia in 1956.

    The booklet, much like the other products created by the Robert Small is socially relevant to issues affecting the African-Canadian community. Sold at just $2, Small kept the booklet inexpensive to make it accessible to everyone regardless of economic status. Small said a quote from Tyrone D. Taborn’s essay in the Covenant with Black America really stuck with him, “Young blacks entering an information-based, technology-driven marketplace without the necessary technological skill sets will not only be unemployable, they will be irrelevant.” Small believes it's up to parents, educators and other members of the community to ensure their children are technologically relevant in the future.
