Alexa Café Program Details
Ages 10-15 | All-Girls | Weeklong | Coding, Web Design, Visual Arts, Leadership, and More
Alexa Café, named after iD Tech co-founder Alexa Ingram-Cauchi, was designed with girls ages 10-15 in mind. While all iD Tech programs are great for girls, we acknowledge the pervasive STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) gender gap, and seek to remedy it with a chic, collaborative learning environment focused on girls. The Café emphasizes leadership, entrepreneurship, brand identity, and philanthropy, with STEM subjects creatively woven into the curriculum. Alexa Café encompasses coding camps, game design courses, filmmaking classes, web design courses, and photography camps. View all courses at this location.
Code.org reports that while over 50% of the U.S. population is female, women make up only 12% of Computer Science undergrads. Similarly, women comprise nearly half of the U.S. labor force, but hold only 4.6% of top leadership positions (according to catalyst.org). Many girls are missing out on future STEM careers and big opportunities to innovate and create change. Alexa Café is not about special treatment for girls. It’s about fostering leadership and tech skills in a fresh setting that’s unlike anything else.
