Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out yourself, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime and how we learn in real life. Let's get kids to learn how to learn. Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make a meaningful impact.

"Oli totally enjoyed himself. He also told me how precise he needed to be when writing a code for a robot.... something he remembers from his first coding course. I appreciate how this course shows the higher purpose of computers to young minds."

"He loved it so much so that he wants to stay back after class ended to continue his work!! Small class size, so it was really engaging for him."
