Through our 501(c)(3) foundation, we have introduced over 300 local public school kids to JavaScript app development.

In partnership with the CodeBeetle School of Technology and Boomtown startup Bitsbox, the program was specifically designed by educators to mesh with current school curriculum to reinforce critical thinking and problem-solving in addition to teaching soft skills that are so critical to success in the workplace.

This is addressing a deficiency in computer science curriculum in schools, is a great way to give back to the community, and the exposure has driven membership for our coworking space, EVO3 Workspace.
