Our Programs in the Harlingen, Weslaco, Brownsville and McAllen region:
- Coding: Kids love video games and computer animations, so our coding program isn't only relevant — it's a great way to capture budding imaginations, nurture creativity and focus on a variety of modern computing techniques. Using innovative Tynker™ technology, your child will work on interactive weekly projects that you can share to show off his or her exciting progress.
- Robotics: Building a LEGO® robot is already cool, but the real magic happens — and the real science and engineering concepts come into play — when your child brings his or her creation to life using LEGO® Education's award-winning WeDo™ programming software.
- Engineering: Whether your child is constructing machines that go, go, go with LEGO® or building soaring bridges with K’NEX®, the sky’s the limit on fun! These creative challenges get kids to think like real engineers.
