Zero to Startup is a uniquely designed 13-week program that will help youth, ages 12 -17, unlock their creativity and become problem solvers within our society.
We believe that youth have the ability to change the world when given the right resources and mentorship support. At Zero to Startup, we are not only hoping to create the next wave of change makers but to create a change in the world starting with today’s future leaders. Working with our theme of SMART Cities, participants will spend the first 4 weeks learning introductory digital fabrication, robotics, HTML/CSS coding, and business skills.
From there they pitch their own SMART Cities Startup Projects and spend the remaining weeks in class building prototypes and pitch presentations that will be showcased in week 13 of the program. Youth don’t need to come with any prior knowledge of technology, just a willingness to learn. Empower yourself to create your own future.
