About Kids That Code:
The Tech STEAM Center was a vision started in the classroom with a program called KIDS THATCODE. https://www.kidsthatcode.org/. The roots of Kids That Code, Inc. began in a classroom as a graduate student project that was part of the Inland Empire Center for Entrepreneurship (I.E.C.E). The premise behind the foundation of the company was to bring S.T.E.A.M. education to children of all ages. The heart behind the concept came from the realization that the skill sets necessary for the "Tech Jobs of the Future" would hinge on developing those skills early in life, and therefore the company was officially launched outside of the CSUSB classroom in 2015.
