Stacks+Joules is a nonprofit project-based learning program in computer programming and wireless network management.

According to the Department of Labor Statistics 32% of students who earn a high school diploma are not prepared for college or a career. That’s a vast talent pool of over five million young Americans—including many individuals from low-income families, people of color and recent immigrants in urban areas.
Stacks+Joules believe these workers’ brilliance and enthusiasm is an untapped resource in the race to find technological solutions to the complex social, economic and environmental problems of our time. Their program demonstrates that, with the right approach, every student has an important role to play in our shared future.
Industry involvement is a key part of their platform. Stacks+Joules seeks to provide students with site visits relevant to the curriculum and immediate internship placement upon graduation. If you or your company is having a had time finding qualified candidates for open building controls specialists, we can help.
