Computers are everywhere and we all need to learn how to use them. Many of us use computers extensively every day. But have we ever thought how they work, or how we would write computer programs to tell them what to do? Computer science is a fascinating subject that explores these very questions. It is not only a science but also an art which stimulates children's development.
We live in a digital era and demand for skilled computer scientists is at its highest level ever. Traditional education teaches kids about computers but possibly too late in the day. Also traditional education tends to ignore the creative and problem solving sides which are fundamental to computer science. Kids are fascinated by computers, tablets and phones and find the creative side of computer science very interesting.
Geeky Kids mission is to teach kids about computer science, programming and problem solving in a fun and intuitive manner. They use proven techniques and materials such as block (graphical) programming and unplugged programming. They also encourage kids to work with each other to solve problems and 'think like computers'.
The team are a nice bunch of people with a passion for kids and computers. They teach children in an interactive way. Lessons are not too long and have a very good teacher-to-student ratio. All of this ensures that the children remain stimulated at all times. They think that computer science is more fun and accessible than ever!
