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 of this booklet written by the author. It 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 bridge the link between Black youth directly and technological advancement.

About The Book
Putting it simply, 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 the basics about the stock market. There is also an art section in tribute to Viola Desmond who fought segregation laws in Nova Scotia in 1956.

“We’re Going Full STEAM Ahead” is virtually inexpensive (sold at $2) by both download through or print at

The booklet, much like the other products created by the author is socially relevant to issues affecting the African-Canadian community. It is inexpensive in order to make it accessible to everyone regardless of economic status. Small takes Tyrone D. Taborn’s statement in his essay in the Covenant with Black America in account where he states “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 asserts that it is up to parents; educators and other members of the community to ensure their children are technologically relevant in the future.
