Start them young ! Our Tech Junior program gets kids as young as 8 years old interested in coding and enhances their love for STEM.
Live tutors teach virtual groups of 3 students basic tech concepts such as MIT Scratch and Berkley Snap using game-based, no-code platforms and experiential learning models.
Your child will have the opportunity to build games and publish them to the MIT Scratch library for the whole world to play.
Your child develops algorithmic thinking and problem-solving skills while learning basic coding in a small group environment. Classes incorporate games, stories and group activities to keep them fun and engaging.
We match three children of similar ages or skill levels in a group with one tutor. Groups meet weekly for one-hour sessions, and children will see the same tutor week after week for consistency.
Topics covered each week are reviewed and reinforced using quizzes and puzzles. Between classes, students continue to code on their own and publish their games to the Scratch library. Show & Tells are encouraged at the next week’s class to show what each student has learned and accomplished.
While building games and animating stories, children develop logical algorithmic thinking and problem-solving skills, which can be applied to many different situations and subjects.
The process of creating coding projects helps children to develop not only computational thinking skills but also life skills known as the four Cs: Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Critical thinking.
Many children show higher engagement rates and better absorption of new concepts when they learn with peers. Our small groups of 3 students to 1 tutor provide the benefits of social learning along with personalized attention.
Our programs help children to develop strong self-study habits that enable them to do their homework faster and get higher grades in STEM classes, which in turn increases their confidence and performance in all subjects.
