Since a child I have always been interested in Science and Technology, winning the Science Fair and always getting the latest gadget or video game. So it made sense to want to share my love of the two with the upcoming students of today. As a S.T.E.M. and Computer Technology teacher for over 15 years, I enjoy sharing my love of Science, Technology and Coding with students. Scratch and Vex Code are two coding platforms that allow me to do just that. Also, Create & Learn allows me the opportunity to share this love with even more students around the world.

Refund Policy: Full refund before the class begins. Once the class starts, we can't provide refunds, but if your student misses a session (or sessions), we can try to coordinate a make-up in another section of the class.
