Founded in 2012, we at ThoughtSTEM made our start as a group of UCSD graduate students teaching local San Diego students about computer science and technology. For the past 5 years, we've taught thousands of students how to code in our after-school programs, summer camps, and workshops around the Greater San Diego area. La Jolla Elementary School was the first after-school coding program we started teaching, so it will always have a special place in our hearts!
