Learning by Doing

We believe that the primary way students learn is by interacting with technology directly through hands-on activities and use cases. By giving young girls the hardware, software, and mindware they need to develop code, engineer solutions, and design interfaces, these students walk away with objective lessons and a newfound inspiration to meet even greater challenges in the future. 

WORKSHOPS

We can provide your organization or school a one-time, introductory workshop, or weekly classes year-round as per your need. These are just a few of the course offerings we offer:
