All of our classes are instructor-led and taught online this summer.
The Summer Program is from June 13th to August 8th. The classes are one week long, Monday to Friday, for half a day in the morning (9:00am-12:30pm) or half a day in the afternoon (1:30pm to 5:00pm) or 2 weeks long for 1 ½ hours per class. The 2-week programs are Scratch, MIT App Inventor, Minecraft and Roblox Studio.
Due to the popularity of the Online Daily Program, yet a third option is available during the summer.
Get $30 off for every two summer workshops that you sign up.

Courses for younger students with little to no programming experience
These are visual programming languages where you drag and drop blocks and connect them together to form your program. This is the best way to learn coding as it focuses on the logic, problem solving and critical thinking skills without getting hampered on typing and syntax. It provides quick feedback and results to encourage and keep your child engaged.
Rather than taking the entire series in order, we encourage you to take a few classes of each category and then move up to the next level over the years. Otherwise, the abstraction and the math might require concepts that they may not have learned in school yet.
Courses for students ready to learn a traditional programming language
WhizKidz has an entire series of classes for each of these languages so you can work your way from the start to become an expert.
Courses for students interested in robotics and electronics
You can drop off your child 10 minutes before class starts and pick up no later than 10 minutes after class ends. If your child signs up for the morning and afternoon sessions, s/he can stay during the lunch period from 12:30 to 1:30. There is no extra charge for this. We also offer lunch at an extra cost, or your child can bring lunch if you are staying for the full day.
All classes are held at our facility at 1072 S De Anza Blvd., Ste A201 (second floor) in San Jose unless otherwise noted.
Our courses resemble a classroom-like setting except we guaranteed an 8:1 student/teacher ratio and typically, the class sizes are much smaller. This allows for personalized learning and individualized attention, yet they still have the opportunity to work, share and collaborate with others and make new friends.
If you prefer private lessons, check out our Tutoring/Private page for more information.
We provide the computers for use in class, but you can optionally bring your own laptop. For some classes, there may be a material fee.
You can purchase lunch for the week or bring your own. If you enroll in both the morning and afternoon courses, your child should have a lunch. The lunch period is from 12:30 to 1:30. We provide water, although we recommend you to bring your own water bottle or drinks.
Food and drinks are not allowed in the computer rooms. The only exception is water, but it must be in a container that can be closed.
The cost of the course are listed below. If you want private lessons, see the Tutoring/Private page for more information. Some courses like Raspberry Pi and Arduino have a material fee. This is for purchasing equipment that you will be using in the course and is yours to keep. You can optionally purchase the equipment yourself.
Sign up for summer and get the registration fee waived (normally a $50 value)!
We reserve the right to dismiss a child from our classroom if they are causing excessive disruption in class. The child will be warned about their behavior and the parent will be notified first before this happens. There is no refund on the current course(s) if the child is dismissed. For any other future courses, the remaining balance will be refunded minus any credit card fees.
Unfortunately if your child misses a class, there is no makeup class or credit. If your child will miss the entire course, then see the Cancellation Policy below.
You can get a full refund if it is more than four weeks before the course start date minus any credit card fees if applicable. Otherwise, you will get credit to take any other course (adjusted for any cost difference) at another time within six months of the course start date. If you do not sign up before six months, you will forfeit the money you pay for the course.
