Why is it so vital that we teach our children to code?
We are already living in a world dominated by software. Your telephone calls go over software-controlled networks; your television is delivered over the internet; people don’t buy maps anymore, they use the web; we all shop online.
The next generation’s world will be even more online and digital. Soon, your house will be controlled with software, some of your medical care will be delivered over the web and your car may even drive itself.
Software is the language of our world
Software is becoming a critical layer of all our lives. It is the language of our world. In the future, not knowing the language of computers will be as challenging as being illiterate or innumerate are today.
Will every job in the future involve programming? No. But it is still crucial that every child learns to code.

Our Charter: Providing an interactive, hands-on experience for the kids to create awareness, excitement and understanding of technology, science and mathematics ( S.T.E.M)
Student-centered, inquiry-based, project-based, and complementary to the academic curriculum
- Ideal places to deliver STEM activities in innovative ways that have relevance to students
- Reach a diverse group of students at a time when they often lose interest
- Provide an excellent training ground for future STEM educators
|Intro||Students are introduced to creative computing and Scratch, through sample projects and hands-on experiences.|
|Arts||Students explore the arts by creating projects that include elements of music, design, drawing, and dance.The computational concepts of sequence and loops, and the computational practices of being iterative and incremental are highlighted.|
|Stories||Students explore storytelling by creating projects that include characters, scenes, and narrative.The computational concepts of parallelism and events and the computational practices of reusing and remixing are highlighted.|
|Games||Students explore games by creating projects that define goals and rules.The computational concepts of conditionals, operators, and data, and the computational practices of testing and debugging are highlighted.|
