It’s just as important to learn how to code as it is to build a bridge or hug a tree. We don’t know what your child will be when they grow up, but we want them to succeed. Our weekly themes fall under three categories: Science, Technology & Nature. All of them include maker projects that fuse collaborative design challenges with art and individual expression. The point of our programs is to spark kids’ curiosity, stretch their creativity, strengthen their collaboration skills and inspire self-reflection. Along the way, they experience our interconnectedness with each other and the natural world. When 21st Century learning skills are combined with this kind of social emotional intelligence, their potential for good is boundless…and that’s what success looks like to us.
