Our Instructors

Our expert trainers balance impressive technical ability with excellent communication skills. They are computer scientists, engineers, and industrial designers with prior teaching experience. All of our trainers have Working With Children checks, and a passion for inspiring young people to embrace STEM skills.

Our Philosophy

We pride ourselves on our ability to cater to students who are racing ahead, while supporting those who need more time to practise their skills. We aim to help students better understand the technological tools they have at their disposal, and how they can create rather than simply consume. Students are encouraged to adopt an experimental mindset, and think ‘What if?’ without giving into a fear of breaking something. We believe that people with unique interests learn to code for different reasons, and there are many ways to engage kids with tech in a way they find exciting and encouraging.
