Hands-On, Real-Life Learning
Kids learn better when they're building, moving, creating, experiencing, and interacting. That's why it's our mission to expose kids to those kinds of hands-on, real-world learning opportunities in a variety of ways.
In our Professional Skills Boot Camps and Internships, kids learn about fields like healthcare, retail, media, and accounting through site visits and internships. And, professionals from those fields help prepare the kids for what they need to know. In our Coding and Robotics programs, students learn real-world critical thinking skills by, for example, designing a robot that moves like a sumo wrestler, or by programming a short video game.
For students, we build confidence, increase exposure, and develop skills that matter. For parents, we bring peace of mind that their child is building on their natural gifts and talents. We deliver our programs on-site at schools, and offer select workshops at our one-of-a-kind learning center.
Professional SKills Bootcamp & Internships
We partner with schools and businesses to provide career-focused experiential learning opportunities for middle and high school students. Our professional skills boot camp is an intensive program that gives students the interpersonal and business skills they need to be successful. Example workshops in the program include: Making a Good First Impression, Business Etiquette, Verbal and Non-Verbal Communication, Problem Solving, Researching a Company/Industry, and Microsoft Office Skills.
Students then get to apply what they've learned through exposure to a variety of businesses across different industries, interacting at professional lunches and networking events, participating in our Interactive Career Fairs, and working as interns at partner companies. This unique program provides an amazing experience for students and is very rewarding for the companies who work with them.
CODING & Game Design
Interested in creating animated stories and video games? Here’s your chance to try it out!
Game Design is a great program for kids who are curious, creative, and like technology. It teaches kids the foundations of programming and enables them to design/build video games and animated stories. Throughout the workshops, the kids create music, build animations, create custom characters, and develop prototypes.

LEGO ROBOTIC WORKSHOPS
The LEGO Robot workshops ignite a child's desire to learn - and keep learning - by stimulating curiosity, creativity, and
critical thinking. Our teachers integrate math, science, technology, and teamwork to create a positive, fun, learning environment.
Elementary School Students: Your child will build a motorized robot (e.g., an airplane, car, alligator, bird…or something from their own imagination) and program it to start/stop, move forward/backward, turn, and make sounds like thunder, lasers, and much more.
Middle School Students: Your child will program a LEGO MindStorm robot to complete our challenging indoor track. The robot will face various obstacles, and your child will find creative ways to overcome
them using programming and sensors (light, sound, touch) to control
the robot's movements.
