PRO, RETIRED AND COLLEGE ATHLETES

Traditionally, athletes have been engaged to encourage kids to excel in sports and fitness. We believe athletes can also use their platform to encourage them to try computer science and get interested in their greater education.

Computer Science is a fundamental part of daily life, commerce, and just about every occupation in our modern economy. We believe that creating a positive association with computer science education in the early phase of a child’s development can create a bond to computer science and, in the future, lead to a promising career.
