The most rigorous and effective coding classes for kids anywhere.
Purchase, NY (PRWEB) September 09, 2016
SummerTech and its founder and visionary Steven Fink are pleased to announce the launch of their new college-based computer science learning center for middle and high school children, Coditum Labs. Coditum Labs and Purchase College, SUNY have collaborated to bring the Westchester, NY, northern New Jersey, and western Connecticut communities a new kind of extra-curricular coding learning center. SummerTech has long been known as the most rigorous and effective coding classes and now Coditum Labs has quantified their method along with a powerful leadership program.
"We've found that just offering coding classes is not enough.", says founder, Steven Fink. "When we started empowering our rising 10th and 11th graders to assist with our teachers, and taught them the pedagogy of coding, we were able to reduce our student to teacher ratios. At that point the learning rate increased dramatically. Middle schoolers who were spending three weeks with us at SummerTech were suddenly coding at a fourth semester college level. That's about 45 hours of coding lessons. Our leadership program is the backbone of what makes us successful. We want to bring this college-based model to the whole country and develop a generation of high-performance coders and leaders."
Coditum Labs opens on September 17th with an Open House featuring free Python classes. Their fall class schedule begins September 19th with Java and Python programming classes.
