Black Panther continues to prove itself to be more than just another superhero flick, as the billion-dollar blockbuster inspired a 12-year-old boy from Minneapolis, Minnesota enter the world of tech.

DJ Comeaux has launched a tech initiative, Afro Bot Boyz, that encourages young people of color to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

Fox 9 spoke with the pre-teen about the venture, who admitted one particular character from Black Panther inspired him the most.

“[I was inspired] not by Black Panther the superhero, but his sister Shuri,” he said. “She used to create all of the designs and technology so I kind of really like that … I wanted to boost the confidence of people that look like me, more likely to be interested in being in robotics.”
