what Steve Wozniak wrote in the official statement
Our aim is to educate and prepare people with digital skills that favor hiring, without pushing them into years of debt. People are sometimes scared of opting for technological careers because they think they can't make it. I know they can do it and I want to show them how. I spent my whole life building, developing and creating a better world through technology and I always respected education. Now the right time for Woz U and we are only at the beginning.
Woz U will also offer an app to help people understand which field in the tech field is best suited for them in order to prepare an adequate course of study.
At the moment there are no details on any prices.
