Programming/Coding

-Concept Design allowing for the incubation of ideas from inception to production

  • Coding For Kids – We have developed a curriculum that teaches core programing skills in a manner that progresses to improve the proficiency of writing code languages for all
    levels.
  • Crime To Coding – Urban Hip Tech Foundation has developed a Recidivism initiative that includes teaching formerly incarcerated individuals the necessary skill set to pursue careers in IT and leverage their existing business acumen into entrepreneurship.
  • STEAM=Building blocks of the feature:

UHTF puts the STEAM into STEM adding the Arts as the driving learning force. Science Technology Engineering Arts & Mathematics (STEAM) education is an integrated and student-driven method of instruction. It is a blend of theory and hands-on concepts based on these five disciplines and real-world experiences. Creating and enabling the development of human capital to compete in the new knowledge-based economy is being accomplished by everyday application of science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics to real life. We encourage learning complex issues through the creative edge of music, theater, film, photography, animation and fine arts. Creative learning is empowerment learning, which is a fundamental of the UHTF philosophy of learning through the promotion of creative expression. Learning is the expression of human potential. Urban Hip Tech Foundation is the access and resource for that expression.

Preparing the next generation for lucrative careers in technology and financial independence.
