Hackathon Sponsorship with SSF
As reported by idTech, fewer than half of the schools in the US offer computer science classes and only 20% of US high school graduates are prepared for college-level coursework in STEM majors. This is where we come in. At SSF we are dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty through STEM education.
Our hackathon programming is a unique opportunity for companies to take an active role in DE&I work. By combining your company’s professional tech expertise with our proven model of student STEM education and mentorship, we can offer a state of the art hackathons to young people in need. We have seen time and again that this creates the curiosity in kids to pursue technology education.
Hackathons are hands-on events where people with interests in STEM congregate and develop a novel and technical project.
We can accept between 5-20 volunteers from your company. Because we host our hackathons virtually, employees can be located anywhere.
