25+ tech industry volunteer mentors will be at the event to help students learn, and to share their tech career journeys with educators and parents.

The event is Free and Catered, with unlimited people per school!

Less Text, More Understanding

The robotics, visual programming and programming games are focused on appealing to visual, tactile and experiential learners.

Students still learn real industry programming (JavaScript and Python), however they don’t need to to focus on memory or staring at walls of text – everything is physical or works like a computer game.
