"I had always been interested in tech but never had the opportunity to enter into that world until Nextech. How does someone like me, with no one to relate to, figure out if tech is really for me?”
"Being able to work with people I didn’t know and actually use my computer science skills and knowledge for a business problem helped me learn a lot. It opened a lot of doors for me. I’ll be forever grateful to Nextech."
“Nextech brought together a bunch of mostly introverted teenagers like me in a way most summer programs can only dream of. We knew this was a place for us to learn and improve, and we thrived.”
“I’d never pictured myself as someone who could code. I thought it was for sophisticated people, and I’m not like that in any way. But I did it. I learned so many skills that I never thought I’d be able to learn."
"There will always be a new frontier in tech. To be future-proof and viable, you have to be educated in computing"


“CS in general touches every field now. No matter what a student is interested in, tech has an influence on it. I really try to make students think about being producers of tech and not just consumers."
“Females and people of color aren’t traditionally seen in computer science, and women tend to be underrepresented in all STEM fields. Schools must recruit purposefully to get people in place who look like alltheir students.”
"We have to give students more ways to express themselves, and computer science can do that as much as art or music. They just don’t know it because they don’t see people who look like them doing it."
