SkyAlum Stroll Health Featured on News Channel KTVU
SkyAlum Stroll Health was featured in an episode on the news channel KTVU for their support of a greater emphasis on tech education in general curriculum. Stroll has hired 12 computer science student interns to contribute to their startup for the summer. Co-founder Jordan Epstein highlights the difficulty in hiring qualified coders as the demand for workers with their skill set is growing, while the supply of students remains small, especially as he is competing with big name tech companies.
Stroll supports ACT The App Association’s initiative to appeal to Congress to implement computer science into basic curriculum in schools. Students need exposure to software development at an earlier age, as tech devices are becoming commonplace household materials. Both Stroll and ACT are working to create an environment where students move beyond being tech consumers and users, into developers.
