In 1999, our family pioneered the very first tech camps for kids and teens. We’ve since grown from 280 to 60,000 students per year, spreading Silicon Valley startup culture across the U.S. and beyond. No other program has our track record of long-term student success, our passion, or our reputation as the world's go-to summer STEM educator.
From summer camp startup to industry leader
Our mission is to create life-changing tech experiences that embolden students to shape the future.

“In the beginning, we worked 7 days a week. We earned no salaries. We had no financing. But we believed in the idea of awesome technology education. Over 20 years later, we’re the largest, most trusted tech program in the world.”

Gender parity in tech
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.
Open STEM jobs
The Smithsonian reports that by the end of the year, 2.4 million STEM jobs will go unfilled. Our long-term learning system equips kids and teens with skills for the most exciting, in-demand careers.
We reserve 10%, or 7,000, of our seats for students from underserved communities to help bridge the digital divide. Every child deserves access to quality tech education, regardless of socioeconomic background.
One-of-a-kind summer staff

That Director with the green mohawk? He’s a game design guru from EA. The Lead Instructor with the superhero cape? She’s a software engineering undergrad at MIT.

Never “just another day at the office”
From our Education Department, Client Services, and Marketing, to Engineering, Risk Management, Payroll, and Logistics, our Main Office crew is committed to providing “Positively Outrageous Service.”
We work out in the open amidst brightly colored walls and creative décor and unwind with ping pong, Mario Kart, trips to the cereal bar, and generous PTO. On birthdays, we go BIG with personalized desk decorating sprees and celebratory lunch outings. Because “normal” is overrated.Careers
