    WhizGirls Academy

    Our goal at WhizGirls Academy is to serve and train all students in Los Angeles and to host teacher trainings (to train the trainer) and license our WGA curriculum within the next year. We are in a growth period where we have done our pilot programs and found great success. Every student that has come through our WhizGirls Academy program to date has stated that they want to get into STEAM careers (engineers, coders, game designers/developers, interested in starting tech startups, etc). We are building a strong ecosystem of tech innovators too.
