Our spring, summer, and fall classes bring students together each week to make progress on individual projects, dive into hands-on activities, and explore opportunities for self-expression. By challenging students at their individual level to create projects as unique as they are, we underscore the power of personalized learning. And with our 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio, students get the guidance they need to keep moving forward. Keep reading to learn more about ongoing semester learning.
Our experience working with students of all ages and skill levels has shown us the importance of allowing and encouraging time to tinker, iterate, and create. By meeting weekly, our seasonal programs help students establish a foundation on which they can build, grow, and develop new skills.
What’s Class Like?
Whether your child is joining us in one of our coding spaces or from the comfort of their couch, our classes combine project-based coding and challenges with opportunities to take a break from the screen to laugh, learn, and explore. Here’s what your child can expect from our seasonal classes:
We challenge our students to create projects as unique as they are. Students receive individualized attention and curriculum customization through experienced teachers and a 4:1 student-to-teacher ratio. Using the Socratic method, our teachers ask questions aimed at helping students discover their own solutions to problems. Whether your child is new to coding or already building their own websites and projects, our classes allow students to progress through our curriculum at the pace that’s right for them.
Students take a break from their screens and discover the opportunities to create and explore that exist all around them, even in their own living rooms. Centered in the world of STEM, these activities draw on skills found in engineering, language arts, design, and more. These opportunities support cognitive, emotional, and social development, allowing students to grow in fun new ways.
Each week, students are challenged to learn new programming techniques and stretch their minds in fresh, interesting ways. Each class ends with a reflection on the day's work, lessons learned, and future goals.
