Black Woman Creates First Interactive STEM Doll to Deter Cyberbullying

Bukola Somide, creator of 14-inch Somi, the first ever Computer Science Interactive Doll, is on a mission to make playtime educational and entertaining. Equipped with 12 voice-overs, Somi teaches Computer Science concepts in a fun way and deterring cyberbullying.

The “first” of its kind, our Somi STEM doll was designed based off the looks of the main character in her children’s storybook, Somi, The Computer Scientist: Princess Can Code. In the book, Somi (pronounced is a curious, bright, humorous, and beautiful young girl who has a natural interest in learning Computer Programming concepts from her mom. Her inquisitive nature allows her to connect what she’s learning with real life experiences. Somi’s persona was created with the intent that young learners would find her relate-able and want her as a friend.

Bukola’s words succinctly capture the essence of this project and her drive as a change agent, “My passion is to bring computer science awareness to underserved communities while deterring cyberbullying. I’m so excited for everyone to experience Somi, The Computer Science doll!”
