We’re putting together our competition team for the 2018 season. There’s only a limited number of spots and will be on a first come, first serve basis.

We have some awesome NEW courses coming up this spring and summer!

Parents searching for courses that combine their children’s love of Minecraft or Roblox with programming  … your prayers have been answered!

In our Programming with Roblox course offered in May, children will learn the basic concepts in video game design, design a basic game using the platform for Roblox,  and get an introduction to the coding language, Lua, used to program their game.

We are also offering our Programming with Minecraft mini course in June. In this course, kids will learn to make mods for their beloved game, Minecraft. Using programming blocks similar to the Scratch programming language, your children will learn basic programming vocabulary and computational thinking to make some amazing mods.

And, don’t forget about our SUMMER COURSES! Summer is a great time to introduce your kids to all the fun STEM courses we have to offer. Registration is flexible and families can sign up for one, two, or all three courses.
