What is Skill Struck all about?

Creating opportunities for all students to develop technical skills and equipping them to have a positive impact in an increasingly digital world.


Computer science education made simple.

In 2017, we started Skill Struck to help future generations form a positive relationship with technology. What started as one-week summer camps transitioned into a 1-on-1 tutoring platform.

Then, in spring 2019, we started selling computer science curriculum and software to K-12 schools and districts. We aim to make computer science education engaging for all students and easy for teachers.
