50/50 gender parity

Six years ago, just 12% of our campers were female. Today, over 50,000 girls have graduated from our camps and Academies, as well as our all-girls program, Alexa Café. Launched in 2015, Alexa Café is now the country's largest tech camp for girls.

Millions of STEM jobs

There are currently millions of unfilled STEM jobs in the US, and the number will increase every year. Our long-term learning system equips kids and teens with skills for the most exciting, in-demand careers.

Student scholarships

This year, we will offer more scholarships than ever before to students from underserved communities. Every child deserves access to quality tech education, regardless of socioeconomic background. Our goal is to help bridge the digital divide.
