Qeyno’s mission is to transform children's lives and give them the power to transform their worlds through social innovation, education, and technology.
STEM workers were women in 2011. Computing (27% women) and engineering occupations (13% women).
projected computing-related jobs need to be filled by 2020. We can only fill about 30% of those jobs with U.S. computing bachelor's grads.
What Is A Hackathon?
No Coding Experience Required
Hackathons gather together technologists (coders), artists (designers), and problem solvers (innovators) to brainstorm, design, and build a web or mobile app that can change the world, create a business, or both!
Qeyno is the home of Hackathon Academy, our flagship school that prepares high potential youth in low opportunity settings to become next generation developers, designers, and innovators in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art Design, and Mathematics).
All meals prepared for Hackathon Academy participants are selected from local vendors based on their nutritional value. Meals are selected that will enhance mental and physical performance and contribute to overall wellness.
Our participants are introduced to healthier living options through high protein snacks, organic foods, and vegetarian/vegan offerings that help them reach and maintain peak levels of performance. These choices also contribute to the preservation of overall wellness for achieving personal goals and develop winnable habits.
Our expected budget per Hackathon school in 2015.
2K - 2.9K
Average investment cost per Trailblazer (youth participant).
