Why We Do this

At BizStream we’re so passionate about technology that building awesome stuff isn’t enough for us. We want to let world know how great being a developer is. Our mentors have backgrounds in coaching, teaching, and working with students so BizStream Academy seemed like a natural extension of what we do every day.

We believe every student should have the opportunity to learn to code which is why we try to keep BizStream Academy as barrier-free as possible.

 

No Money?

We do everything we can to break down any barriers to students learning code.  Don't have the $20 Registration Fee?  
We have a limited number of scholarships available.  Contact us for more information.

No Computer?

We don't want a silly thing like not having a computer to hold a student up from learning to code.
For students without access to a laptop we can provide one to use during their session.

 

Why code?

Code is what we do and we want to share it with everyone.  Here are some practical reasons to turn your passion into a career.

  • Jobs - Computer programming is one of the most in demand professions in the country and that demand is only expected to rise.
  • Creating Not Consuming - Why be stuck with only using apps on your phone or visiting websites passively?  Why not build them yourself?  
  • Brain Benefits - Research shows all kinds of cognitive benefits when students are exposed to learning code early in their education.
  • Coding Changes the World - Technological innovation is on the forefront of improving our world.  The right lines of code can be a powerful tool for everything from changing a single life to altering the course of an entire society.
