"To be a good programmer you need to develop your problem-solving skills, as well as your logic. omegaUp has helped me acquire that, in addition to being able to share that knowledge with the students and teachers that I have mentored"
Orlando Mendoza, MX
"An advantage of omegaUp is the wide variety of problems to solve. You can find easy or difficult problems so that you can find a problem that is at your current level."
How omegaUp works
Social Justice through education
We are proud to offer a free competitive programming platform to equip our students with the technical skills and problem-solving abilities they need to thrive in today's economy.
omegaUp.com is designed to be accessible to students from underserved communities in Latin America. We make the platform available in Spanish, which is the native language for many of our students removing a significant barrier to entry for many students who might not have had the opportunity to learn computer science in English.
Our platform is a powerful tool for programming courses in the classroom. It fosters collaboration among students, allowing them to learn, compete, and grow together while developing critical thinking skills and technical abilities essential to success in the tech industry.
Our platform is equally valuable to teachers looking for a more engaging and productive way to teach coding. With its user-friendly interface, teachers can create and manage coding challenges, track student progress, and provide feedback to students. This allows for personalized support that improves student engagement and outcomes, freeing teachers to focus on the individual needs of their students.
Empowering girls in tech
Preparing tech leaders
It is important for all members of society to be represented in the development of technology. Increasing the representation of women in tech can help to address the gender imbalance in the industry and create a more equitable society.
The Mexican Girls Olympiad in Informatics (OFMI) is a project created by omegaUp that provides girls with a platform to compete and show their skills in informatics. They have the opportunity to demonstrate their potential and contribute to the improvement of the tech sector. The best participants represented Mexico in the European Girls Olympiad in Informatics, held in Turkey last September. They won 3 silver medals, and 7th place in the competition, an impressive result for a Latin American country.
Programming clubs provide a fun and engaging way for students to learn and practice computer science skills. By fostering a collaborative and supportive environment, students can explore new concepts and work on projects that interest them. These clubs also provide a great opportunity for students to build friendships and develop social skills while learning about technology.
Our organization is dedicated to providing these opportunities to all students, including those in public schools. We believe that every student should have access to quality computer science education, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. Programming clubs are just one of the ways we strive to make this goal a reality.
There are many ways to support omegaUp in our mission of building the talent pipeline for Software Engineers in Latin America. Learn more about our Partnership & Sponsorship packages here.
