Company Profile

We are creating a new program to teach kids ages 7-15 computer science, virtually, through an online platform, supervised remotely.

We want to teach kids to think computationally, and to learn the fundamentals of computer science.

We are creating a platform that is fun, colourful, and high energy.

Kids will learn through activities that are related to the real-world, so our programming exercises will be based on how technology can be used in the real world, with examples across the environment, healthcare, society and food.

The intern will learn how to design the program and the platform to inspire the next generation of programmers.
