Stony Brook, NY
About kidOYO (link)
This is a "Kids Learning Code" program, introducing students to the mechanics of computational problem solving for any number of student-driven outcomes. Students interested in gaining computational thinking skills, learning to create computer programmed games, imagine interactive and animated stories, or prototype ideas generated from their imaginations using tools such as micro-circuits and the wildly popular 3D sandbox Minecraft will be among peers in this exciting and unique program. We introduce kids 9-13 to creative tools that let their imaginations explore and pursure outcomes in a social context unlike anything else. Here, kids own their own education.
The January ticket purchase includes one (1) weekend day from 10am - 4pm. Club members may come for the full 6 hours or for their desired time. Sorry, but we can not accomodate partial month payment options or "make up" classes.
January meeting dates are listed below:
We love the "Maker Movement"; as professional makers of manufactured goods for the past 10+ years we know how valuable the opportunity to acquire engineering skills can be. As educational toy and technology developers, we appreciate the real-world education of making finished outcomes possible, of iterating our own efforts and "failing forward" in productive ways to give tangible value to others. As entrepreneurs exploring material science to create unique products and packaging, or designers working with subtractive injection molding and additive 3D printed prototyping processes, or programmers working with advanced tools of data science to enable new insights and services... there has never been a more exciting time to become a maker!
