The Bit Scouts after-school coding experience

What our students learn

Mastery of programming fundamentals

Boolean operators, conditional statements, loops, functions - we turn complex programming logic into child's play with our industry leading curriculum.

Creative application of real STEM learning

Kids learn better through play. But our students won't just be playing games: they'll build them from scratch in real programming languages along with animations and functional apps. They'll even use their learning to power hardware like robots and Raspberry Pi.

Proficiency with real programming languages

In our intro and jr. level courses, our students will master Scratch - the industry leading language for new learners. By the time they get to middle school, they'll graduate to building projects in languages like Python and JavaScript.

"Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.“

- Stephen Hawking

Leveling up with Bit Scouts

Bit Scouts uses badges to indicate each student's achievments. Earning badges requires consistent effort on the part of our students throughout the session!

Each student keeps track of their progress using the Scout Report. When an instructor notes their effort or improvement, they are rewarded with a sticker - five stickers in a row earns a badge!
