Kids who are inspired at an early age in technology will pay attention more in their learning, and will have a head start in the field.
Our strategy is actually pretty simple: using video games as the course material. We all know kids love playing games, and they also love to create. By combining these two passions, in an easy to learn format kids excel in their learning and gain confidence rather quickly.
We get them thinking “Wow! I wonder what else I can do?”
People have said inventions are born out of necessity. Whether that was true in the past or not, we do not believe that applies today. With the advances of (CGI) computer generated imagery in the movie industry, and the human nature of believing what you see, kids growing up in this era will have bigger imaginations and a stronger belief that anything is possible. If we combine this way of thinking with confidence, self-esteem, a can-do attitude and a thorough understanding of technology in our children at an early age, we believe our future will be amazing and unimaginable, to us anyhow.
Young children have a fantastic way of viewing the world. Anything they don’t know or understand can be attributed to the fact that they haven’t been taught it yet, and they don’t feel bad about that. The danger lies as they get older and they start to realize that opportunities have not been offered to them, and their options may become limited. We believe that since technology is such an integral part of the world around them, educating kids in the field of computer science and exposing them to computer programming will have an enormously positive impact in their lives regardless of what career they choose later on.
“Since we live in an age of innovation, a practical education must prepare a man for work that does not yet exist and cannot yet be clearly defined..”
Peter F. Drucker • Quote of the Day
“The number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn’t think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential.”
