Where students solve problems that students face.

Why are we here?

We are here to encourage high school students to test and compete with the computer science skills they learned throughout the year!

 

What are our goals?

​I. Provide a weekend long crash course in entrepreneurship for coders to learn about monetization, marketing, user experience and more. We want to teach skills that will allow programmers to see their ideas as a reality, rather than a dream.

II. Contribute to promoting engineering education and gender/racial diversity.

III.  Advocate entrepreneurship for young, ambitious innovators, hopefully allowing them to create a positive impact on the lives of others
