About Us

We strive to inspire the next generation of innovators with real life examples. We want to lead by example, showing youth strongly established leaders both in the professional field and in their own peers via our Silicon Valley Teen Tech Talks twice a year.

Justin, Juno, and Basil are all seniors at Gunn High School and cofounders of Silicon Valley Teen Tech Talk. They are all deeply invested in coding and hope to spread their joy among youth.

Justin Hou is a high school senior at Henry Gunn High School, Palo Alto, CA. He also has over four years of experience in coding in various languages (Python, Java, C++, JavaScript). He has used these skills and passions to develop various competition and hackathon-winning projects. His most successful project was his classroom productivity app, Lucidity. Justin founded and led his team in numerous entrepreneurship competitions, winning a Conrad Challenge Finalist and Diamond Challenge Semi-Finalist along the way. He also won first place in the California Science and Engineering Fair in Plant Biology in 2017. Aside from these pursuits and passions, Justin also loves learning more about astronomy and physics, podcasting on various social issues affecting his generation, playing water polo, and playing the guitar.

Juno has over four years of coding experience, and is also already creating impactful projects. He has successfully given back to the coding community and an antiprocrastination project. He aims to participate in more coding competitions with his friends, Basil and Justin.

Basil has over four years of programming experience. One of her goals is to show other young people the power of coding, and to inspire others to get into programming. She has won many awards with her skill in programming, like the first place category award at the State Science Fair and enjoys giving back to the community with her friends Juno and Justin. Basil hopes that SVTTT will inspire other young people to program.

Teen Tech Talk initiative encourages Silicon valley teens to actively participate in technological innovations, which surround them. It provides a forum for kids to share their passion, work in tech-related projects, and connect with like-minded kids. Without a forum like this, even for kids who enjoy such activities it is easy to lose motivation and get drawn into other distractions of teen life (for which there exist a lot of forums and platforms).
