The Alliance for Digital Fabrication Education is an 501c3 organization whose mission is to create equal access to meaningful learning opportunities for under-served youth and promote development of critical thinking and design entrepreneurship with the use of digital fabrication tools.
We promote the curriculum of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math though direct problem solving with advanced tools and equipment. We believe in the enhancement of our technological progress and economic prosperity through early exposure to digital fabrication technology, and see a future world being balanced by the democratization of digital manufacturing innovations.
All Star Code empowers young men with the skills, networks, and mindsets they need to create new futures through technology. We work towards building a world where every young man has the confidence to dare greatly, the safety to celebrate failure, and the freedom to tell his story.
