After School & Enrichment - STEAM Coding & Robotics Programs for ages 4-14

STEAM education is the intentional integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and their associated practices to create a student-centered learning environment.

  • Student-centered, project-based, inquiry driven and complementary to the School curriculum
  • Less formal setting encourages collaboration, and multi-age grouping helps drive peer-to-peer learning
  • Ideal places to deliver STEAM activities that have relevance to students
  • We come to you - preschools, elementary school, recreational centre and alike

Josiah is out sick today and will not be at robotics club. This will make him so sad because your class is the highlight of his week. He may not show it in the class, but he absolutely LOVES robotics. He comes home and tells us all about everything you guys are doing, and when we tell him it is robotics day he gets so excited.

“We have absolutely loved our year at Wize Academy. This is our family’s first experience with coding (neither my husband nor I are in the field) and this year we did a class with other homeschoolers (ages 5-8).

Ms. Venus did an absolutely fabulous job with the children. She uses the children’s interests to allow them to create unique projects and teach them new skills. My daughter learned a ton about coding this year and Wize Academy provided enough information that she could do her “homework” (very minimal at her age) totally independently.

My favorite part was the end of year showcase. It was an amazing opportunity to understand the various types of coding and see all the childrens’ progress. It was also an excellent opportunity to practice public speaking, poise, and presentation skills.

As a homeschooler, my intention is for my child to pursue independent studies that spark her interest while also developing core life skills. Wize Academy certainly provided a wonderful opportunity for all those things. I encourage all parents but especially homeschoolers to check out the unique offerings of Wize Academy.”

After watching my daughter and other kids learn to code doing a short course at Wize Academy , I must say I am super impressed with how they teach .
I learned C and Basic around 12 or 13 years of age . And I have taught programming classes at various levels . How I wish my intro to coding was this much fun !
The best part was the project work at the end . The kids had all the freedom to choose what they wanted to build , and then parents were invited to the last session of the course where the kids presented . I loved it ! The developer in me knows the pleasure of seeing my code execute well and I could see the same in my daughter – and that was quite a proud moment for me both as her dad, and as a fellow geek 🙂
Job well done Vishal, Venus and
Lekshmi – and thanks ! Maybe I can interview to be one of your teachers when I retire 🙂

Crème de la Crème in Allen has been using Wize Academy for our coding and robotics program this last year..Wize Academy works with our Crème prep students aged 4-5 and our Apres program including k-6th grade. They also provide specialty camps for our Summer Program including coding, robotics and Minecraft. Because of the success of this program 4 of our Texas schools are now using Wize Academy. We have found Wize Academy to be professional and accommodating. We recommend Wize Academy to anyone needing coding and robotics for children aged 4-13.

Wize Academy has had such an amazing impact on the students who are enrolled in the Robotics & Coding classes here on Tuesdays this year! The students look forward to each session and always come out with smiling faces boasting of the things they have learned. The enrolled students ages range from 1st grade to 6th grade and the teacher always accommodates the age differences accordingly. We hope to continue this program in the years to come as we know how important the STEM program is for  our future leaders!

 

Project-based Programs: Programming Adventures Using MIT Scratch

PreK & KG

Description: Students adventure through code as they begin building animations, games, music, videos. They sculpt their coding muscles in this coding
adventure and leave having learnt to code using this very easy to use tool for block-based coding from MIT.
• Learn basics of Visual Block Programming using MIT Scratch Jr.
• Acquire basic programming skills and coding concepts that professional programmers use in their daily work
• Harness opportunity to think, to imagine, to explore, to create while having FUN!
• Lego WeDo

1st & 2nd Grades

Description: Learn basics of Visual Block Programming using MIT Scratch Jr and MIT Scratch
• Learn and apply computational thinking concepts to create games or animations
• Lego WeDo

Project-based Programs: Engineering and Robotics

3rd to 8th Grades

MIT Scratch: LEGO WeDo 2.0 & Mindstorms EV3 : Hummingbird & Micro:bit : MIT App Inventor

Description: Students are introduced to computational thinking by building robots and programming them, and through the creation of animations and
games. In this tested & proven curriculum that follows computer science standards, we plan to help students develop into logical thinkers,
problem solvers and creators through creative robotics and coding projects. Students will solve problems and discover how science,
technology, engineering & math affects their everyday life. We will do this through building fun and useful robots and programming them
to perform activities. This program will also help students to enhance their cognitive skills like hand-eye coordination, focus, self-esteem,
confidence and presentation skills.
