Learning to code is both fun and interactive with the exceptional online technology education & programming classes provided by MYTEK LAB!
My son had been asking to take a coding class for years! Yes, you read that right…years! I know, I know, definitely not one of my proudest moments. And, once the pandemic hit, he was convinced that taking a coding class was no longer and option – so he stopped asking. But, can I tell you how his face lit up when I told him that I had FINALLY enrolled him in a coding class? And, the best part is that it is pandemic proof!
Curious about the coding class we discovered? MYTEK LAB is an online program that offers engaging live technology instruction for grades 3-12. Choose from weekly enriching lessons or specialized beginner to advanced projects.
Online (aka pandemic-proof) Coding Classes
How exactly are my son’s classes “pandemic-proof”? Well, it’s actually quite simple! My son is taking his MYTEK classes online. That means that as long as he’s got a computer and internet connection, he can have class! No need to load up the kids in the car! No need to leave the house!
And, can I tell you, that made his day, especially since he was convinced that taking coding classes was completely out of the question when the pandemic first hit.
And, if you are lucky enough to live in Minneola, Florida (or perhaps you are planning a vacation there), MYTEK classes can be taken in person as well!
Technology / Programming Education for the Future
The world of technology is thriving! I have spoken to engineers who have emphatically expressed the need for people who know how to code. And, this exceptional skill is very well compensated in the workforce!
MYTEK LAB is the perfect way to get your child started on this highly desirable and lucrative path in a way that is not only fun and engaging, but extremely thorough and comprehensive.
I don’t know about you, but I love when my children can learn new, valuable skills in such a way that they actually enjoy what they are learning. To me, that’s the secret to true mastery. When you’re excited about what you’re learning, you tend to retain it.
And, without a doubt, this is the case with my son! He would spend hours upon hours coding with MYTEK if I would let him!
MYTEK LAB Online Education Details
The geniuses behind MYTEK LAB, Stephen and Jacky Souders (aka Mr. and Mrs. MYTEK) have made quality online technology education not only fun and interactive, but easily accessible. My son is currently enrolled in the Tuesday 1pm online TEKnology Lab Level 1 class.
This full year course counts as 1 credit in Computer Education. While providing an introductory look at many different areas of technology, the TECKnology Lab Level 1 class also covers the following topics:
- Computer Fundamentals
- 2D Game Art
- 3D Modeling for Games
- VR Development
- Web Design
- Web Development
- 3D Modeling for 3D Printing
Sound like something your child would be interested in?
Every week (minus holidays) my son is excited to log into class for live instruction with Mr. MYTEK. But, do we have to adjust our schedule to make sure we have a laptop and internet connection every Tuesday at 1pm? Nope!
Can’t make the online class? Forget what was done during the class? Mr. and Mrs. MYTEK have got you (and me) covered! In addition to live classes, video recordings of the live classes are provided in the student dashboard.
Once my son is logged in to either the live or recorded class, Mr. MYTEK teaches the lesson while my son follows along. We have found that it’s helpful to either use two computers or, in our case, he watches the lesson on our tablet and follows along while working on assignments on his laptop. (We tried just using the split screen on his laptop, but having two devices really is a lot easier!)
After the instruction, students have graded assignments and/or quizzes to complete with a project due at the end of each semester. My son thoroughly LOVES working on his MYTEK LAB assignments and projects. (Yes, kids coding with MYTEK look forward to doing their homework!)
It honestly makes me so very happy seeing him passionate about something he really enjoys!
But, I will let you in on a little secret. I have actually used MYTEK to motivate him to get other things accomplished. “You can’t code with MYTEK until ALL your schoolwork and chores are done.” Yep, on those days, he completes his schoolwork and chores in record time!
In case you can’t tell, we BOTH are loving MYTEK LAB!
