Our goal is to prepare students to apply computing concepts to address real-world problems.
Our projects are meticulously designed to be fun and to follow CSTA’s K-12 Computer Science standards.
Kids learn new concepts without even realizing it!
- Low student-to-instructor ratio to provide personalized 1-on-1 instruction
- Students learn from a combination of online and offline material
- All-adult & tech-savvy instructors with background in computer science
- Prepare our students to think, learn, problem-solve, be self-confident, collaborate and to create!
- Teach important 21st century skills including 3D Modeling & Design, Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning, Augmented & Virtual Reality
“In the coming years, we should build on that progress, by … offering every student the hands-on computer science and math classes that make them job-ready on day one.”
- Think : Programming a computer teaches to think
- Collaborate : Kids work as a team to realize their ideas
- Create : Not just use, but create technology
- Learn : Learn what computing is actually like
- Play : Kids learn to code while having fun
- MIT Scratch for animations, games and storytelling
- MIT App Inventor for Mobile application development
- Blockly for block-based coding
- Lego WeDo and Mindstorms EV3, Micro:bit and BirdBrain Hummingbird Kit for robotics
- Minecraft Modding - to create Minecraft Mods using code
- Parrot Education Drones to code and control drones
- Interactive Programming in Python
- 3D Modeling, Design and Printing
- Coding in Augmented & Virtual Reality
- Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning
We believe that “learning by doing” is the best way to learn coding and building programs. Thru our unique program kids learn key problem-solving and project-design skills that are not only helpful in computing but life in general
- Logical reasoning
- Developing ideas from initial conception to completed project
- Collaboration and team building
- Debugging problems
- Sustained focus and perseverance
Students learn from a combination of online projects and offline material. Students participate in project showcases at the end of each semester. Our tutors are adults & tech-savvy instructors with background in computing and/or teaching. We provide regular updates to parents thru Seesaw mobile app.
