individual 's family and coworkers and their hope is to curb the spread and prevent the spread of the disease to anyone else in the area. . after a recent study found many children in oakland are exposed to dangerous levels of lead, health officials have stepped up efforts to test for lead in older homes. they test dust in the homes and use an x-ray machine to test layers of paint. they say most homes built before 1978 are presumed to have lead paint. they can offer the property owner up to 10 thousand dollars to remedy the issue. the county is exploring other options as well. >> there are discussions now underway with oakland as far as exploring the possibility of some type of universal testing
requirement for high risk communities. >> right now the county is working with the city of oakland to develop a proactive inspection program. in the meantime their goal is complete 100 units of lead safe housing for children under the age of 6. if you would like to test your home, contact the county to see if you qualify for the lead hazard repair program. thank goodness it's not pouring outside but there's a lot of fog. >> yes, fog out there and the head line for most is how cold it is. temperatures are thawing out and we're going to have a fairly nice day. mostly sunny skies and temperatures on the cool side. let's take a look at what is happening with the temperatures first. around the bay a lot of low to mid 30s at this time. 43 in livermore as we get into the second part of the day, temperatures begin to warm. take a look at what's going on

is there any word as to how these guys couldn't notice the train was coming? >> that's the question here because from our understanding, the morning guards were down at the time this accident happened. so obviously investigators trying to piece it all together and figure out how the two men didn't see the train coming. the update from the hospital is that one band members underwent urge surgery to treat internal bleeding and the other has severe swelling in his face. they were walking over to the number for the tower of power show last night. as they crossed the train tracks here they were struck by an oncoming capital corridor train that happened before 8:00 last night and again, the crossing arms reportedly were down at the time of this accident. the men were thrown into the air in opposite directions. those two injured band members

california might be the home of silicon valley but future generations might not be prepared with tech companies moving forward. >> half a% of state high school students actually took the advancement placement computer science exam last year and the number of minorities and females interested in science and tech is also quite low. >> for more on this and ideas on how to turn things around, we're joined life by a computer scientist -- -- live. some of the numbers don't seam to be changing. there's a disparity between students of color and females in particular tend to lagging in math and science. this is a problem people have
been trying to solve for decades. >> most recently it's something a lot of people are trying to get at. there's been a recent boom in technology. especially the westbound, everything is becoming westbound based so everybody is like we have to think about how to make our kids more prepared for this -- -- web. >> the thing is there's a lot of resources. the issue is access. one of them -- there's these chrome books in classrooms nowadays but not a lot of teachers who can actually facilitate a classroom of computer science. they do things on the chrome book but they don't go deep into coding and programming apps. the teachers don't really know how to do that so they're intimidate san diego. >> seems as if kids nowadays are always on their devices but
this is something deeper. people might misunderstand this. they say the kid is always on the ipod but he's not doing coding. >> i'm talking blowing the lid of what they're already doing it. the large part is parents because the thing is it's dog to be a while before teacher i think are trained on how to teach programming and things so i think it's up to parents and kids to take it upon themselves ls to get on the internet and look at what they're interested in. >> so maybe me as a parent -- i don't know much about science. how do i teach my child about that? and maybe i'll steer him in a different direction i'm more familiar with. >> that's a problem, yeah, it's all our faults really. nobody saw it coming. we thought it was a fun thing they're doing but now they can get jobs doing this stuff. the first thing is to do it with your kids.
there's actually mren/of textbooks that are really cheap. there's free stuff on the internet and different programs and things that you can try with them. that's the key, to do it with them. >> what's the bigger picture here? especially in california, the hub of tech, what future generation is taking that over? you would hope it's california students and others coming from outside the state is great but it would be nice to have those in our backyard be that next generation taking over. >> it's going to take a lot of -- well, the biggest issue as we said before was access and not necessarily access to the technology but access to the curriculum. the problem is also there's an issue of equity and there's a big issue with economics and equity. unfortunately a lot of scholars don't experience their first computer science class until college and it's too late at
that point. >> is that because schools in neighborhoods are disadvantaged just having a hard time doing the basicallies? precisely -- -- basics. 0. >> there's no one that can utilize that. kids are already starting to think about this stuff. there's a lot of -- like have you heard of the game mine craft? mine draft -- there's a modification called learn to mod so a lot of kids are getting into that. they're making their own version. version. >> let's say we ride a roller coaster and i said that's someone's job was to think about how to create the roller coaster. let's say they see a cartoon
but somebody that's their job is to make these cartoons so i try to weave math and science into fun things instead of throwing a big thick textbook on the table which doesn't work for them at this age. >> the kids are smart. >> something you're already doing, the math and science in there. and you can make money from that. 0. >> they don't want to sit in a cubicle all day. >> trying to find math and science in things -- even production there's plenty of science here. all this stuff with video and editing. getting them involved in anything they're interested in. ing to find math and science that's the goal. >> going back to the statistic,
half a percentage of california students took the exam last year. if you had to pick to get that number up, what should it be at? >> 100% for me. i work for the center, we have a program called level playing field institute. so come check us out. we run a program called smash. i have a picture here. this is summer math and science honors smash academy and it's a five week intense program residential for high school students who are super motivated to learn anything in stem which stands for science, tech, engineering and mathematics and it's to get them engaged in this. the issue is they're not learning computer science in their school. they might be super motivated to do 3d animation and programming but they don't have anyone to teach them. looking for programs like smash
superstitious. we are so different. this one, he and i share a couple more similarities. >> when it comes to sports. when you're watching the giant do you have a special shirt you we are? >> not really. special cap or anything. >> i go to another. 0. >> i'm superstitious every day every way. confess that at the beginning of nine. audio one saying friday the 13th is overrated: tomorrow is never guaranteed, why be superstitious. >> natalie says i got my driver's license on friday the 13th and i did see a brak cat this morning blash . another question, we're trying to pick up the nba games
