WHY IT MATTERS
Our world is changing. Technology has changed the way that we operate, the way that we process information and the way that we prepare our youth for their future.
For children, exposure to STEM education has become a necessity. In the state of California, students score below the nationwide average on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (See the data here.) Teaming up with Kids That Code, the Y hopes to provide exposure and access to STEM-based learning in a fun, exciting way.
