Why Do We Exist?
Innovant Technologies, LLC is a Computer Science EdTech company and creator of award-winning product brand, "Somi, the Computer Scientist®".
Our vision is to help cultivate millions of underrepresented children into effective decision makers, problem solvers, and innovative thinkers. We have started a movement to shift the mindset of children from just consumers to pioneers of technology.
Why Should You Care?
"Computer science is imperative to our future; it develops critical thinking skills needed to solve complex problems, fosters creativity for bold, new ideas and sharpens skills that drive innovation in science, technology, engineering and math." -CS Edu Gallup
Our independent research show that among underrepresented youth, Computer Science education is perceived to be boring, too hard, and lacks relatable mentors.
Also, there’s a significant gender gap in Computer Science (CS) education perceptions; 22% of boys say it is very important for them to learn CS, compared with 9% of girls [the gap is even greater compared to Black or Hispanic/Latino girls, specifically].
