      What Parents Are Saying

      My daughter really enjoys her weekly online VEX IQ class. I was really worried she wouldn't get into robotics, but now she wants to become an engineer one day!

      ~ Sandra

      My kids really enjoy working in their own private group. This way they're all at the same coding level and they're not afraid to ask the instructor for help!

      ~ John

      I was a little worried as a homeschool dad since I don't know any code, but my sons instructor has been really helpful. I love getting progress reports after each lesson!

      ~ Omar

      My daughter tried 3 different camps before settling on Python tutoring. I'm really glad I got the opportunity to test a few subjects before picking one my daughter would love!
