Our Goal

To expand computer science education among elementary and middle school students.

About Us

We are not your traditional operation. We are a fast paced, nonprofit corporation founded for the new era, operating out of Chicago. Seeing that computer science education is lacking among the younger generations, even during a time when the entire world is moving online, we offer remote computer science courses so students are better prepared to enter the increasingly technological society. In addition, we provide high school and college students to chance to give back to the community.

Our Core Values

More and more organizations find themselves having to make major change to keep up in this new era. As a startup in this era, we have the speed and modernity to prosper in this environment.

  • Inclusivity
  • Accessibility
  • Quality
  • Human interaction
  • Giving back
