Coding for Kids

PHILADELPHIA

Our vision

Children should have a balanced approach toward education, learning from the past and embracing the advancing world of technology.  Our world is changing at an exponential pace and Challenging Heads is passionate about educating children for the 21st Century technology.  We want children to become creators of technology from coding to infrastructure, to design.  This knowledge should start at Kindergarten because a child mind is open to new ideas and methods of learning.   Computer technology should be part of a child curriculum and taught in an engaging manner.  We believe that the mere imparting of information is not education; therefore, we take the hand on approach toward exposing children to computer technology.
