Many coding bootcamps don't spend much time on algorithms and focus on learning tools rather than on programming. Many of the top rating bootcamps focus on teaching how to create websites using software. K12engineers program allows students to learn the fundamentals of how web development actually works across tools and technologies, providing them with strong experience skills.
The traditional short immersive coding bootcamp may not seem like enough time to acquire the skills and experience required to be a good software engineer. Unlike Bootcamps, K12engineers integrates coding learning and computer science all along traditional education systems (5-12th grades) by mentoring students from beginner through mastering engineering level.
The short and condensed formats of bootcamps may come at the expense of depth and focus, whereas k12engineers model provides the time to fully explore different areas of computer science.
Experts are of the view that children should learn engineering when they are young. According to MIT, the best age for kids to start learning coding languages such as Scratch is from the age of 5 to 7. Kids who learn to code when they're young can set themselves up for a lifetime of opportunities for success. A survey of nearly 900 developers on Stack Overflow revealed that, if your interest in programming didn't start between the ages of 8 and 18, your chances of being motivated enough to become a software engineer are low.
For most students, the issue of access to engineering careers comes down to cost. A four-year computer science degree can be obscenely expensive, and many students — not just low-income ones — face a variety of obstacles when it comes to completing a college education. K12Engineers Program might be the solution!
Does your child have the inclination or characteristics of an engineer?
Is your child drawn to building with Legos? Are they excited when they see a fascinating house or building? If your kid is always playing with blocks and trying to make the next tallest skyscraper although seeing them fall over and over again rolling clay into various shapes and molds, building objects out of their imagination, attracted by computer and logic games..., chances are you have an Engineer kid at home! Enrolling such children in K12Engineering classes should be an obvious choice for parents. They would be perfect candidates for K12 Engineers Academy!
From ages 10-18, K12Engineers after school online classes will develop the love for engineering in your child. Classes are taught according to age level and experience. Our continuous training will provide all basic engineering coding, critical reasoning, creativity, fundamental programming skills that give your kids a huge academic advantage after graduating High School and prepare them for College engineering fields or professional life. Students will receive a certificate after completing each level. At the end of the program, students will earn the title “K12 Engineer” option Computing. The skills they will learn in this program will be valuable to their college studies, their future careers and beyond!
"Our students are attending from all U.S. states / territories and choose their own class schedule (day and local time) while enrolling."
K12Engineers use Project Based Learning (PBL) teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful projects. The teacher guides children through a multi phase process from the beginning of a project to its conclusion. Project-based learning is a pedagogical strategy in which students produce a product related to a topic. Knowing what to do is half the battle of any task; K12Engineers Academy teaches kids about following directions. K12engineers integrates coding learning and computer science all along traditional education systems by mentoring students from beginner through mastering engineering level.
FLEXIBILITY: Students can “pause” their engineering classes for personal reasons and resume anytime at the same level.
COURSES BY DURATION:
K12Engineers Prep Class: 4 sessions 2hours/week (4 weeks)
K12Engineers Beginners Class: 35 sessions (2hours/Week, September - May)
K12Engineers Intermediate Class: 35 sessions (2hours/Week, September - May)
K12Engineers Advanced Class: 35 sessions (2hours/Week, September - May)
K12Engineers Expert Class: 35 sessions (2hours/Week, September - May)
K12Engineers Mastering Class: 35 sessions (2hours/Week, September - May)
Classes are taken during the school year, from October to May as after school program. High school students that show high proficiency will receive in addition to the common learning stream a personalized follow-up that will provide them the opportunity to take more than one class in a year.
Discipline and punctuality are very important qualities we are expecting all in our students.
Your child can only be enrolled in K12engineers after completion of our FREE K12engineers Prep Class and being selected. A new k12engineers Prep Class session starts at the beginning of each month. Registration is ALWAYS OPEN. K12engineers Prep Class is FREE.
After being selected, all students are enrolled to the k12engineers beginners class. At the end of each class, students will receive a certificate. After completing the program, students will earn the "K12 Engineer" title option Computing.
Enrolled students are provided with:
Classes are held after school, online and once a week. During the enrollment process, students will have the opportunity to choose a day and time, according to their availability. Classes are live sessions through Zoom or Webinar. Students are required to have recent laptops (Windows or Mac) with webcam, or Chromebooks and a copybook.
We place high expectations on all the students to ensure everyone has an excellent learning experience.
Students evaluation is based on assessment of learning that provides evidence of student achievement at strategic times throughout the program.
After each class, students should be able to manage their free time appropriately and follow instructions with no supervision to complete the projects.
To earn the Prep certificate learners must:
- attend all 4-weeks K12E Prep class sessions.
- be able to follow teacher directions and complete all prep class projects.
To earn Beginner - Mastering certificates learners must:
- attend 30 - sessions. Those 30 sessions can begin anytime during the school year, after a successful completion of the Previous Level (if necessary, completion during the following school year).
- submit all 7 required projects (one at the end of each month) to show their understanding of program content.
Classes are recorded and always available, whenever our students have time to devote to their learning. They can watch and re-watch the lecture for additional support during their studies or reference it for that final project.
Zoom Accessibility Policies:
K12E Zoom policies include, closed captions in real time to be added to meetings and webinars for attendees accessibility when requested. We do not take in charge any other accommodation since doing so would impose an undue hardship on the operation of the Free program. Keeping in consideration the interest of all of our participants and preserving the wherewithal of the program we are providing will remain our main goal.
We are looking forward to welcoming our next promotion.
