Welcome to the 21st century after school program! Introducing the After School TechKidz Program™, a first-of-its-kind after school program with a high tech flair for youth in elementary and middle school. The TechKidz Program makes high tech learning a high priority.
In the 21st century, you can't afford not to have your child learn programming and understand technology. Read the study by Oracle Academy and Burning Glass Technologies, the White House's initiative regarding computer science, and watch the video from code.org to hear what the top leaders and company founders have to say. A growing trend in colleges is to deemphasize and make the SAT and ACT optional for admissions, paving the way to demonstrate one's abilities through other means such as coding and projects done.
The TechKidz Program is one of the best ways for your child to learn coding and be immersed in technology. We foster an environment of creativity and innovation beyond the standard math and language arts. Each day, the student will spend about an hour either on our computer theme of the month or on some days, they will work in the area of their interest. The themes we did last year were on machine learning, web development, robotics, GameMaker, Scratch and 3D printing. We have a few new topics that we will be covering this year.
With homework time, the goal is to complete their homework before leaving our center, which is one less thing for you to worry about. There is a learning activity that will cover concepts in math, writing, and arts but done in a fun, social and light manner. This is all tracked online so you can see your child's progress on any given day. We provide snacks and drinks and value safety, cleanliness, non-overcrowding, and positive attitudes.
The times and schedule align with the Cupertino School District. We provide transportation to our center from most schools, but do contact us to confirm.
