Our kids are growing up in an era when technology is all around them,” added Saurabh Gupta, co-founder at Wonder Workshop. “But still, 90 percent of kids in the U.S. will have no idea of how things work.” Gupta co-founded Wonder Workshop to change the direction in which U.S. children are heading.

The U.S. Department of Education estimates that 75 percent of schools in America don’t have technology as part of their curriculum. According to the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology, more than 600,000 high-paying tech jobs went unfilled in 2015. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates by 2022, unfilled Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) jobs will rise to about one million. This jobs will be found mostly in the fields of computer science and engineering.
