We've created multiple lessons to help our youth learn how to build webpages and write software. Our goal is to give every child the opportunity to learn from professionals in the industry. Learning to create webpages and write functional programs is a lot of fun. Programming allows you a freedom to create whatever you desire. If you can think of it, you can do it.

We focus on teaching 10-18 year old youth, how programs and websites are created. We encourage everyone to take our Intro to Web Development class. It's an 8 lesson course that teaches them HTML/CSS and has an intro to PHP and Javascript. By the end they will have created a completely functional website and will be ready to take our more in-depth classes.

Don't hesitate to call us (801-876-0224) for more information and get started today!

Testimonials

Thank you everyone for your feedback!


Where to begin? My son Jonathan knew virtually nothing about coding when he signed up for your class. I can honestly say he wasn't excited, as this was not an interest. However, he went to the first class, loved your instructors, and was hooked. He begged me to pay for java as soon as he heard you offered it. Your instructors are top notch and your program is outstanding. I appreciate the free classes on Saturdays. You have exceeded my expectations on every level. Thank you.
My boys sure love the programming class. Thank you for doing this.
I'm not someone who really likes computers, but I actually found this fun.
I learned more in this class than I did in my semester at school.

Internet Safety

Thanks to Adam Moore for his presentation about the dangers of pornography. It was awesome to listen to what he had to say. He's a great presenter and allowed the audience to interact with him and ask questions.

Below are different services that offer content / time management solutions and how to implement them, if you have any questions please contact us.

Open DNS

Open DNS (opendns.com) is a content management service. That is easy to implement and is managed with one admin login. It can be used on individual devices or on your wifi router to filter content of anyone connected to your internet.

See images below for OpenDNS filtering options.

DD-WRT

DD-WRT is software installed on your router, to control internet usage

It's strong point is being able to control how long each device is allowed to access the internet. This software can be installed on most linksys type routers or you can purchase a buffalo brand router which comes pre-installed with dd-wrt software

Net Nanny

Net Nanny is a paid service that offers a lot of protection, and can be installed on all types of electronics from computers to tablets to phones. You'll be protected no matter where the device goes.

In addtion to offering content filters and time management solutions it also includes some other options. You can set social media settings to be notified of social media activity on one of your accounts. Also, you can have net nanny manage the account so no one in the family knows the admin password

Microsoft Family Safety

Microsoft Family Safety is really a complete tool to protect any number of windows computers or tablets. You can have one or multiple admin accounts to control content and time limits on the internet for the other accounts. Kids accounts are easy to custom and allows them to request access to other sites. Parent accounts are notified of activity and site requests through email.

Apple Parental Controls

Apple Parental Controls allows you to customize settings for each login account on your mac computers / ipads. iPhones have a different setting called 'Restrictions'. With Mac Parental Controls you're able to set both content filtering and internet usage limits. They also have a 'kids' setting that will only give them access to a handful of websites such as pbskids.com and any others that you include.

Mission Statement

Provide youth the opportunity to learn computer science in an environment with knowledgeable teachers through 1 on 1 interaction.

Philosophy

Unlike traditional schooling where each lesson is taught to a full class and you're required to attend each session, our curriculum is taught individually and allows the student to go at their own pace.

Our courses are project driven and the students will see their work expand into fully functionally websites and programs. Every session will be attended by multiple qualified teachers allowing students to attend as often as their schedules permit.

Our curriculum is based off the needs of the current software job market and not fads or games. All of our staff is in tune with the software environment. We keep current as computer science evolves.

We want to provide valuable experiences and habits so our youth are prepared with the correct knowledge to work at the leading software companies.

Regardless if a student pursues computer science as a career, having a foundation and knowledge of computer programming gives him a huge advantage in the job market. Not only will they understand the man power it takes to complete various projects, but being able to relate and communicate effectively with software engineers is an individual that all companies seek after.
