Our youngest students have the wildest imaginations and are still actively dreaming. So it’s the perfect time to help them imagine all the possibilities for their future! Exposure to infinite career paths begins in elementary school through courses that allow students to identify their interests and skills. 
Hands-on learning is a crucial part of learning in the early years. 
STEAM elementary courses allow students to connect their academic learning as they problem-solve, experiment, and collaborate. 
Career readiness skill development begins early through courses and activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM).

The Hour of Code is a one-hour introduction to computer science, using fun tutorials to show that anybody can learn the basics. 
Students who enjoy this experience can pursue additional courses in computer science in middle and high school.
