AlgoSTEM is a non-profit organization led by Arushi Gupta and Akshaj Gupta. Both have past experience in competitive programming and understand the fundamentals behind advanced algorithms and data structures.
AlgoSTEM also has a popular Youtube channel that covers solutions to coding problems including those from Leetcode, Codeforces, Codechef, and various math competitions.
Sama Setty is a senior at Washington High School in Fremont, CA. As an experienced competitive programmer, she has taught algorithms at her high school, AlphaStar Academy, and various libraries around the Bay Area. She began creating her own curriculum targeted for USA Computing Olympiad (USACO) contestants after noticing the lack of free, structured resources available to them.
