to improve diversity and inclusion of individuals in the computer
COVID-19’s effects have revealed great wealth inequalities in America’s communities.
More than ever, marginalized and impoverished communities need opportunities to lift themselves
out of poverty.
we believe that providing educational opportunities to learn computer science, one of the
highest paying job sectors, is the solution.
We hope that by bringing students of all
backgrounds together, we will be able to
foster innovation, creativity, and create new lifelong friendships for hackers.
we connected nearly three hundred students of all skill levels, to build novel projects that
positively impacted the world. Over
one hundred attended our free classes led by industry professionals to learn new skills. Over
twenty mentors lurked in our helpdesk to help participants when they needed help. Last year, our
judges, mentors, and workshop instructors
were affiliated with the likes of Stanford, Harvard, Amazon, NetApp, and Wikipedia.
With the lessons learned from 2020, we aim to host a competition consisting of over 350
participants, while targeting the underprivileged
communities around the world. To help achieve our goal of providing a learning opportunity for
everyone, we will be sponsoring internet access to those who need it to truly level the playing
field for all.
