Kids loved our after-school and summer workshops. It’s hard to go wrong with the magic combination of technology, video games, and creative, self-paced activities. Although we no longer give workshops, we still think fondly of the good times we had and all that we learned. Here are some kind words from our customers.

“My daughter had a terrific time and also learned so much”
1 February 2007
“My daughter had a terrific time and also learned so much during your Robotics Camp. She was so sad that it all came to an end. She seemed more self confident at the end of the week. Thank you again and please say thank you to all your most valuable assistants, who are wonderful and terrific with kids. It was a comforting thought that when I dropped her off in the morning, I knew she was in good hands. That is truly a gift for any parent.”

“I can’t imagine a more enjoyable way to launch a child into analytical and creative endeavors.”
1 September 2005
“Winston himself has terrific programming skills, but what sets him apart is his deep interest in mentoring and in communicating his love of programming to others. He always remained calm and patient, but he quietly expected the best behavior. Very rapidly the kids rose to the occasion and could be treated as adults. By the end of the class they had recognized him as a role model as well as a teacher and friend.”
