, allowing students to develop their problem-solving skills using a hands-on approach in fun and interactive ways. Students learn all of the critical fundamentals of programming, including syntax, code commenting, control structures and overall readability. Students begin with the use of the Karel programming language - Silicon STEM is one of the only certified providers in Colorado teaching this educational language from Stanford University - a required course for incoming Stanford freshman. If you have attempted to learn online, have gotten too frustrated and have maybe even thought that programming is not for you...then this class is for you. We'll get you going fast and build a foundation for you to build upon for the rest of your future. This IS the first step!
Silicon STEM Academy is a technology workspace and training center for thinkers, tinkerers and technologists of all ages. We have a singular focus to inspire and equip the next generation of technologists with the skills required to be creative, effective, innovative leaders and problem solvers in the 21st Century. Our goal is to help fill the need left unmet by many schools to ensure students acquire valuable vocational and life skills. To prepare students to support themselves through college and gain early entrance into competitive career fields.
We utilize STEM principles (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in the context of problem solving through technology.
