Mira Awards2020 Tech Education Award
Nextech is creating initiatives and building partnerships that connect educators, innovative nonprofits, and entrepreneurs to deliver best-in-class programs that inspire and enable young people from all backgrounds to pursue careers in technology.
More than half of the 9.2 million science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) jobs in the U.S. between 2010 and 2020 will be in computing. Yet, fewer students pursue technology careers every year. Nextech exists to close the gap. We expose young people to new career possibilities, teach them how to interact with and develop technology, and inspire them to explore careers in tech.
