"My kids had a blast & came home armed with knowledge & information which they were excited to share with us." - Joanne, Parent



"There's an app for that!"
The world 10 years ago was real different. There were phones... but no smartphones just yet (real popular ones I mean).
Would we have imagined that now entire businesses are built on apps? It's become an essential part of our lives, impacting us in so many ways. Spotify, Uber, Pokemon Go! (ok, maybe not the last one for me)
Now imagine if anyone, even kids, could go from playing with your phones, to creating their own apps & making that same lasting impact on your lives.
Wouldn't that be awesome?
The good news is... it's easy to get started & you'd be amazed at what kids can build.
This is the coding editor, a visual interface where kids learn to design & code apps by dragging & dropping design elements & code blocks.

App Inventor 2 Block Editor

See how easy that was?
It's almost... magical.
We can't wait to see the apps that your kids can come up with.

Pedagogy

No lectures. No memorisation. No ONE right answer. Like real life, we're all about trying things out, failing, figuring what went wrong & trying again. These are the skills & mindset that will last a lifetime. Let's get kids to learn how to learn.
Because the kids who learn to learn become curious, inventive, resourceful human beings who solve real world problems to make meaningful impact.
