Benefits of learning to code:

At The Tech STEAM Center, we believe in hands-on learning and experiential education. Our Weekend STEAM Club provides students with the opportunity to explore coding concepts, unleash their creativity, and develop essential skills in a collaborative and supportive environment. Here’s what your child can expect to experience:
  1. Explore Coding Concepts: Students will dive into the world of coding, learning fundamental concepts and applying them to create their own programs and interactive experiences.
  2. Build Robots and Circuits: Using popular platforms like Lego Mindstorms and Arduino, students will construct robots and circuits, bringing their creations to life and understanding the principles of electronics and robotics.
  3. Create with Animation Software and 3D Printers: Through animation software and 3D printers, students will unleash their imagination and bring their digital creations to life, fostering their artistic skills and understanding of digital design.
  4. Develop Games Using Various Platforms: Students will learn game development techniques and create their own games using a variety of platforms, honing their problem-solving abilities and unleashing their creativity.
  5. Foster Community through Collaboration: Our Weekend STEAM Club encourages collaboration and the formation of a supportive community. Students will work together, share ideas, and learn from one another, fostering teamwork and building lasting friendships.

  • Clean, friendly, and professional environment. My daughter learned new things everyday, she just love it.

    Allizon Torres Avatar Allizon Torres
  • The STEAM tech center provides enrichment for my kids that the don’t necessarily receive at school. They can learn to code, play chess, use the 3D printer, pixel art, and so many other things. There is time provided at the beginning for homework or reading, and then the kids can work on their various projects. They get so much out of it and look forward to going every week. I would highly recommend.

    Joy Lin Avatar Joy Lin

  • Amazing program, highly recommend to any parent looking for something stimulating for their kids especially in coding and programming. My boys have been going to another STEM center and I was concerned that they will get bored but I was wrong. They have fun and learn every single day. The staff is very caring and helpful. Feel like a family with them. This place is a true hidden gem. So happy with the summer camp.

Kodu

Kodu is a visual programming language made specifically for creating games. The user has complete control in creating terrain, which includes hills, valleys, ponds, etc. It’s a great platform for rapidly prototyping a 3D video game. Kodu is created by Microsoft and runs on Xbox 360 and Windows operating systems. Kodu does not run on Apple products.

Scratch

Scratch (developed by MIT media lab) is a block-based visual programming language used to create interactive stories, games, and animations. Scratch is “kid-friendly” but is no joke. Almost any game can be recreated on Scratch and computer programming concepts can be learned by using Scratch. Scratch is used at UC Berkeley and Harvard University for teaching 1st year computer science majors.
