Thank you for your Interest!

We know how important it is for you to make sure your child is included into the digital-age that we NOW live in. We also know that sometimes, it’s difficult to afford inclusion.

That is why Air Force K12 STEM has partnered with SW Design School, L3C to provide access to technology resources for students throughout the United States.

Together, with other partners; we are eliminating the digital-divide that is so often hindering our Urban City youth.
