E-mail Print PDF

“ I was thrilled to hear that I was accepted into this program. Zero to Startup is a 13 week long technology startup program created by Steam Labs. This program helps with the development of entrepreneurial skills and provides opportunities such as working with real world tools and technologies like 3D printing, laser cutting, electronics etc. The first couple weeks consist of the introduction to Arduino, coding, how to develop websites etc. After the individual skills are built, group's will be formed and they will design and build a product with a specific user in mind. On week thirteen, the prototypes will be presented to judges and winners chosen. The first three weeks have been a great experience.” Menna A.
