The world today is driven by technology and Artificial Intelligence, which is why there is such demand for STEM-related skills. However, there’s a major shortage in the United States of qualified candidates to fill these high-tech jobs. In this workshop, we will discuss the reasons why. As the founders of Swift App School, we're inspired to give back to the youth by teaching coding and App Development through activity and project-based summer camps and soon, an online curriculum. We'd like to share our backstory, how we built a successful camp model, and what our plans are for the future!
