Updated 3/12/2019

Who are we? We are a mobile S.T.E.A.M. program providing before-after school programs, summer camps, and computer & academic tutoring designed for ages 5 to 12. We teach our youth critical technology skills they will use for a lifetime! During the school year you can find us at elementary school's who participate in our extended program, in the summer, at local schools who partner with us to run our summer camps. Check out our FB Page, Computer Kids Club Delaware to see what our awesome students create in our program! Our program is designed to teach small groups and provide independent instruction resulting in a more valuable learning experience for your child.

OUR key focus is teaching beginner CODING skills, TYPING & GRAPHIC DESIGN skills. Students at this age are taught the core programs in Microsoft/Google/MAC, giving them experience to use these programs through their growing school years and beyond. We blend academics into the program as well, teaching MATH, Engineering, Science, Grammar, making our instruction time not only educational, but a fun adventure! Our students achieve confidence and computer skills before entering middle school. Some of the projects the students create include but not limited to: Google Doodles, slideshows of technology pioneers, X-Box design, App inventions and Digital Animation.

Since we have had a lot of families ask this question, here is the answer.

YES, we play MINECRAFT in the club, however, not on the XBOX! The kids actually think we have an XBOX set up when they arrive the first day, and we do NOT! Everything the students learn is through the use of the personal computer. They will learn important functions like radio buttons, slide bars, opening and closing internet tabs, research for reports & so much more!

We choose to teach technology using the children's favorite characters to make a difficult task simply become more fun and encourage the students to hang in there while learning what technology has to offer. Some skills, such as the graphic design skills, most grown-ups do not know how to do, and I know this because they tell me!

For instance, we use Microsoft Paint to create our own boxy Minecraft character, so the students learn paint tools, shape tools and how to draw with the mouse or trackpad. Whether it be the arts, engineering, technical, math or science related, we assure you the activities are educational and will promote learning math principles, technology programs, such as creating a PowerPoint or Google Slideshow, and TYPING, which is most important to learn how to do correctly to become a fast and accurate typist. 

WE together can give our future workforce the skills they will need to run medical equipment, develop programs for appliances, phones, and computers and prepare our students for the limitless number of jobs that will use technology.

OUR INSTRUCTORS have a NATIONAL BACKGROUND CHECK & PRINCIPAL REFERENCES

Why choose our program? We bring over 20 years of experience teaching Pre-K to 5th grade, education through technology. I began the program with a Dell desktop in 1996, you know the big, boxy, beige computers?  I used compact disks and worksheets to teach students back then. Look how far we have come!

We deliver a summer camp and after-school program teaching MANY important technology subjects your child will need to know as they grow up in the digital age. Other technology programs focus on ONE subject. In my opinion and by experience, this creates boredom for a young student and they lose interest very easily, affecting the amount of information they actually retain.

Also, what is focused on in other technology programs, I have witnessed, is complicated and above the child's learning level in most cases. We CATER to our students and make sure if an activity is too easy, or if its too hard, we adjust the challenge. We do not force a student to work on one subject if they are frustrated. We want our students to have a positive, memorable experience and not become intimidated by technology.
