Websites and mobile apps

Grades 4-5

Classes for curious students who want to broaden their horizon regarding the multifaceted IT world. During the classes, students create personalized web sites in HTML and CSS languages corresponding to their interests, write codes for interactive mobile apps in JavaScript language and build simple micro:bits robots.

Animations with JavaScript

Grades 5-6

Classes for chldren interested in coding and willing to learn how to write a code. During the program, students learn the syntax of JavaScript language and create interactive drawings and animations by means of the code. In addition, students learn the basics of robotics by building and coding complex micro:bits robots.

Electronics and 3D printing

Grades 6-9

Classes for quick-witted and creative students who are willing to find out what is hidden in every device. During the classes, students develop prototypes for different electric circuits and devices using Arduino micro-controllers and supplement them with 3D models designed and printed by themselves. At the end of the program, students put their knowledge to test by creating their own technology solutions.
