PS Solutions Foundation

We teach our trade to the next generation. Our 501c3 Foundation was created in 2012 to encourage young girls to develop an interest in software engineering and consider careers in computer science. We love that our foundation offers tools and resources to teach kids of all ages to learn how to code. Our goals include:

  1. Get children exposed to computer science early.
  2. Help girls in particular see that they are welcomed in this field of work.
  3. Demonstrate how computer science leads to a rewarding career.
