A growing tech industry in a city is considered as a flourishing and healthy economy. Today the top 15 cities creating the most technology jobs and their tech job growth in the last decades are below:

1.       San Francisco, California– 90%

2.       Charlotte, North Carolina – 62%

3.       Austin, Texas – 76.6%

4.       San Jose, California – 79.6%

5.       Indianapolis, Indiana – 68.1%

6.       Raleigh, North Carolina – 46.9%

7.       Nashville, Tennessee – 75.6%

8.       Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, Washington – 47.7%

9.       Detroit-Warren-Dearborn, Michigan – 26.1%

10.   Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, Colorado – 40.3%

11.   Salt lake City, Utah – 38.9%

12.   Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas – 43.2%

13.   Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Arizona – 48.5%

14.   Grand Rapids-Wyoming, Michigan – 34.0%

15.   Kansas City, Missouri – 37.5%

With the growth of technology jobs it is getting harder day by day to find right with right skillset and aptitude to fill in the jobs. There have been many initiatives for alternative hiring approach. But the real way to fix this problem is to inspire kids to be motivated about STEM early on, when they are young and curious. The learning capacity of kids is way more than adults. Adults bring vast amounts of prior knowledge to the classroom, and children bring their limitless enthusiasm and curiosity.

Alison Gopnik (Psychology,Berkley) researched why children are better learner than adults. In Gopnik’s words “young children may actually be more wide-ranging and effective causal learners than adults. I argue that, particularly in the course of play, children perform more “high-temperature” searches of hypothesis spaces than adults do. In one empirical study 4 year olds were better able to learn a low probability higher-order causal hypothesis from data than adults were. In a second empirical study preschool children given new information about a causal system made very similar inferences both when they considered counterfactuals about the system and when they engaged in pretend play about it. Counterfactual cognition and causally coherent pretense were also significantly correlated even when age, general cognitive development and executive function were controlled for.”

TymeMachine is attempting to solve the problem of low STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) aptitude by bringing hands on development of STEM through technology. TymeMachine is offering a unique STEM camp for kids between ages 6 and 12. Suparba Panda the founder of TymeMachine believes the future lies in the hands of our little master minds. The camp is using technology to sharpen the STEM skills. It focusses on Critical Thinking, Building, Electronics, Problem Solving and Growth Mindset.
