Private Code Class

Our Private Code Class (one-on-one training) is a scheme developed to train students on programming personally based on their schedule and mode of training. This type of training gives the trainee the flexibility of choosing when they want to have the training and time frame that meets their convenience.

Summer of Code School

This program occurs in one of the four seasons, usually from June – September targeting the long-term break/holiday i.e summer break. It’s our strategy of showcasing and rewarding talented kids. This training also works well during the school’s summer lessons and it helps the kids explore something different from the regular school activities they are used to. The training is within two (2) to four (4) weeks. The students are usually introduced to logical thinking skills, creative thinking, and problem-solving skills. We use the program to inspire and empower kids to fall in love with programming. 

This program is not entirely free but schools or organizations that are interested should reach to us for a plan that will suit them.

Code Club

Code club is the platform where groups are formed to learn while solving some challenges and building sustainable solutions for their communities. This platform is specifically designed for schools as an extracurricular activity. The students get to spend between 1 to 2 hours with an instructor and they work, learn, and grow with other students.

Schools that have an interest in setting this club should reach out to us on how to go about it. It is not totally free.

Code Weekends

This program takes place on weekends specifically Saturdays for about three hours. The students get to learn in the company of other students and it can be a virtual class or a physical class. The programs come up once in a while and adverts will be placed whenever such an event will take place.

Brace Conference​

This is the largest conference that accommodates kids and teens worldwide, the conference works in an interesting pattern. Kids that have been experienced in the Information Technology sector get chanced to speak at this conference and others get to learn from them. This is usually free to attend and it is also focused on inspiring, challenging other kids interested in programming so as to see that they’ve got peers who are doing well in the tech world. Programming is not restricted by age nor gender and we hope to inspire kids by engaging them with young and talented speakers, some of which are already involved in tech on a professional level. It also helps to showcase awesome projects built by young coders around the world. Please visit the Events Page to know more about the conference.
