Pre-School Programs for Ages 3-5

It’s never too early to begin an exploration and education in technology and science! Computer Explorers of Northeastern Chicagoland offers courses appropriate for children as young as four years old, designed to foster an interest in digital and technical pursuits.

Does your pre-schooler LOVE technology? Want to let them explore their inner Techie while fostering hands-on creativity & problem solving in a team-based environment? TechStars provides S.T.E.M. Lab Explorers programs for pre-schools!

Working in pairs or teams, we’ll explore exciting S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) based programs such as:

★ Programming Robots & Coding to reinforce problem solving & Math concepts

★ LEGO Engineering to introduce engineering concepts & critical thinking

★ Digital Arts to collaborate by creating 3D stories, and animations

★ Digital Microscopes to encourage observation and hypotheses formation

At the end of the session, parents will be invited to our Technology Fair and any digital work produced by the children will be uploaded to our Cloud to be shared with friends and family!

*We promote an inclusive environment and welcome aides / extra support if your child has special learning needs and will discuss strategies in advance so they can be successful!

Augmented Reality With Aurasma – NEW!

Augmented Reality With Aurasma – NEW!

augmented-reality

(Ages 8-12) Our exclusive new program introduces you to the ‘magic’ of Augmented Reality (AR). Working in pairs, you will bring the static world to life, creating content-rich interactive experiences in 3D and even 4D with the help of avatars, 3D models, animations and your own creativity. This powerful technology allows you to create and publish your own Augmented Reality content. Talking newspapers, holding a NASA spacecraft in your hand and bringing your lip syncing avatar to life will become your new augmented reality. After class, friends and family can download the free app and experience your interactive, engaging content come to life!

Coding With Python

Python is a powerful, expressive programming language that’s easy to learn and fun to use! Working with a partner, we’ll guide you through the basics as you experiment with unique (and often hilarious) programs including secret agents, thieving ravens, and more. Work on programming puzzles designed to stretch your brain and strengthen your understanding of this new language! You’ll learn basic data structures like lists and maps and how to organize and reuse your code with functions and modules.  Who knew you could learn a new language so quickly!
