Focus on skills

Our comprehensive approach helps learners to develop skills valuable in the world of software development, and important for their everyday life
  • Logical Thinking
    Logical thinking is one the most basic skills important to anyone. Observation and analysis. Reactions and feedback. Drawing conclusions and estimating outcomes.
  • Problem Solving
    Problems and obstacles are the integral parts of our everyday life. How wonderful it would be to be capable of solving problems efficiently in no time.
  • Programming Skills
    Programming is acknowledged to be an essential skill for having a high quality of life in the next 5-10 years. One should be able to write a simple program for a computer to process the data.
  • Communication
    Being a part of society requires lots of interaction. Friends, colleagues, superiors. Team work. We are not all born with effective communication skills, they have to be cultivated and practiced.

Here's what they say
Some feedback
  • It's important to start learn coding at this age and not to lose time. Knowledge is easily gained at this age, the most important thing is to present it in a correct and simple way. It explains the benefits of technology in simple words and opens the door to a new and changing world for students.
    2nd Grade Teacher
  • We started to learn coding to teach our kids. That allows us to communicate in one language. The computer turns from a harmful thing into a very useful one. The kids get a lot of joy when they manage to complete a task, they see the robot arriving to the right place.
    1st Grade Teacher
  • We need to constantly motivate kids to study. Such lessons do that. The kids are intrigued by what will happen next.

  • After the lesson my son came up to me and said: "I want more!!!"
