Computer access for all students

Every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science.

Why Is Computer Science Important for Younger  Students?

Computing continues to be one of the fastest growing fields, yet computer science is rarely part of children’s core education. We believe that giving students opportunities to explore programming and learn coding skills is critical to supporting their academic success and beyond.

What is Special About Computing Kids?

Our top-quality educators guide and teach kids to imagine, design, prototype, and build innovative software programs in a fun and collaborative environment. Students gain the hands-on skills they need to become technology creators and problem-solvers.

Programming Classes for Every Skill Level
Unique Curriculum
Adapted by Age & Level

Computing Kids classes make computer science exciting, creative, and fun for a wide range of skill and confidence levels. Dynamic instructors foster an environment of collaborative learning that emphasizes risk-taking and problem-solving supported by plans and tools. Classes are generally offered for K-2, 3-5, and 6-8 according to students’ progress level.

Creative Computing with Scratch –
Advanced

Building on what students learned in Creative Computing with Scratch – Basic, kids in the Advanced class create increasingly complex games and projects by exploring storyboards as well as building custom blocks and optimizing them by creative use of variables.

Mobile App Development with App Inventor

No prior programming experience is required. In this hands-on workshop, students learn to build exciting and fun applications for the phone. Mobile apps illustrate functionality such as basic graphics, sound, touch screen inputs, and other sensors. Kids come up with their own app ideas that can be shared with friends and family.
