Frequently asked questions
We have a simple approach to enrolment. You can schedule a free assessment lesson, and after the session, you get a recommendation for a course that fits you the best. You will be asked to decide on the class format and classes will be scheduled shortly based on your convenience. If you choose a Robotics course, the STEM kit will be shipped to you.
You need to let us know the preferred course. If you are not sure, we will recommend the course that suits you. The instructor demonstrates the course in an approximately one-hour online session. This will be a “get to know” session and is used to evaluate the level of understanding of the child so that we can recommend a suitable course. As a parent, you can find answers to your queries regarding the course structure and curriculum. A recommendation from the instructor will be sent to you soon after to help you decide on the course.
We offer live, 1-1, or 1-2, and group coding classes. You can choose the format once you decide to enroll. We offer an age-oriented approach, in the course, we cover programming fundamentals and transition to advanced concepts depending on the capabilities of the kid. There are courses in Scratch, App Building, and Python.
Unlike our software courses, in this course, we use visually appealing hardware modules and extensions to make learning more activity oriented. Kids learn to program the robots with Scratch and Python. We offer live, 1-1 or 1-2, and group Robotics classes.
Our teachers are selected after multiple rounds of screening and interviews. Teachers go through a five-step selection process with a selection rate of 3%. They also undergo a one-month rigorous training before they start. Teachers regularly attend workshops conducted by professionals and are mentored throughout the process.
Our group classes (maximum size 6) are prescheduled for two days a week. If you prefer them, please contact us and we can guide you through the process.
Our courses start at age 5. We believe that age is not a barrier to learning. We have a range of course options suiting your age and coding background. We have courses for adults who are looking for a career switch too with Python.
We are an online academy and do not provide physical classes currently.
We encourage them to participate in contests worldwide. We also organize competitions to prepare our students for challenges.
Yes, kids are encouraged to design and build their own projects. The instructors provide project ideas after every 10 sessions and ask the kids to develop them. There are assignments and regular homework in addition to projects to encourage self-learning.
The STEM kit has a microcontroller, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi module, different sensors, motors, LED screens, rechargeable batteries, and many building units.
Yes, after completion of each course, you will receive a certificate.
STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM Robotics focuses on the co-existence between hardware and software components for activity-oriented learning. Technological solutions to real-world problems are mostly the results of STEM education. Learning becomes more fun and engaging, and kids retain the concepts better.
Coding improves their logic, problem-solving abilities, decision-making, algorithmic and abstract thinking. The current tech world requires coding competence to suit industry standards.
We don’t believe in age is a barrier to learning anything new. However, at the age of 5, kids develop reasoning and logical skills that are necessary to understand the algorithm and program flow. Our “Little Coder” is tailored to the needs of your little smart one. We encourage starting at any age you feel is fit for your child.
Coding and building projects using STEM Robotic kits help in building logical and psycho-motor skills in kids. They can enjoy programming better as they can see the results in a more visually appealing manner. This kind of experiential learning makes the process fun and interactive.
Technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning are quickly picking up and Robots are expected to replace traditional jobs sooner than expected. Does this mean humans would be jobless in the future? Well, many of our kids could if we don’t prepare them to meet the needs of the future.
The education system has not changed much in the last 30 years. It uses the same methods even after technology has advanced a lot. This will force the kids to go through a steep learning curve to learn the technology and be ready to take up jobs.
Kids are encouraged to think independently and develop their ideas to make projects based on real-life problems. We give equal importance to STEM, activity-based learning, Programming, and meeting industry expectations. We visit and revisit our curricula which are tailored for self-paced learning.
