Who We Are

The Geek Foundation seeks to bring more people into the technology fields by offering hands-on, project-based courses to the Springfield, Missouri community. We aim to expand the image of a "geek" to include anyone who has a passion for computer science, regardless of race, gender, or any other broad classification. Develop yourself with The Geek Foundation.

The Geek Foundation exists to provide interactive education, resources, and support to future software engineers, techies, and makers — especially women, at-­risk youth, and the underemployed.
