Our students learn algorithmic thinking, which is a very valuable skill, even if not all of them will become programmers. We will help them master new programming languages and technologies by letting them create games relevant to their age group, using their acquired skills. The individual and group activities significantly enhance the creativity, problem solving and communication skills of the children. It is very important that the children feel the experience of being successful, become open and brave to initiate their ideas. This will positively affect their results in school.
It is natural for the children to use computers, tablets, and smartphones. By learning programming knowledge, we enable children to spend their time in front of the screen not only in a passive recipient role but, in a more active and creative manner.
No preliminary training, exceptional mathematical or IT knowledge is required. Anyone can program, it is worth giving it a try!
Our youngest participants are six years old, but you can start programming at any age, it is never too late!
Our trainers are enthusiastic young university or last year's secondary schools students, who are very good at programming. Before they start teaching, they participate in a professional and pedagogical training organized by Logiscool.
You can apply to a Logiscool course or camp exclusively via our website. You can select the desired school location under the Our Schools menu item, and then you’d need to fill out the application form on the website connected to the desired school location. During the application period, the school management will approve applications or suggest alternatives based on group schedules and availability.
We organize demo lessons in our schools regularly, typically during the subscriptions period, before the start of semesters or before the summer camps. Students and their parents interested in our courses are all welcome at these events. During these demo lessons, we introduce Logiscool to the participants. They can have a glimpse at the exciting world of programming and get the chance to code without any specific preliminary training or qualification. For more information about the date and time of our demo lessons, please click on the Our Schools menu item and select the desired school location.
Our programming courses include computer game and application design, robotics and for the first-grade students we also organize a digital introduction course. Robotics courses are about programming and building LEGO Mindstorms EV3 robots. By selecting the desired school location under Our Schools menu item, you can view the courses offered by the desired school location.
We organize our 5-day camps during the school holidays. We host camps around various topics like programming, application design, robotics, Minecraft and website design/video editing. Please select your desired school in order to access their full camps menu.
Our courses generally start in September and end in June and include two semesters. The late-comers can also subscribe to our courses in February and attend one module. Please select "Our Schools" menu item and click on the desired school location to double-check the start date. The curriculum of our courses consists of modules built on each other and running for several years. Several years are required to learn how to program at an advanced level, similarly to learning a foreign language or obtaining musical virtuosity.
Students participate in one session per week of 1h30 (including 2x40 minute classes with a 10-minute break in between). In general classes take place on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday after 4 PM, on Wednesday after 1:30 PM and throughout Saturdays. The exact schedule differs from school to school, so please check the "Our schools" menu item for the desired school schedules.
Our beginner students are grouped based on their age. We offer separate groups for children based on their school year: 1st primary; 2nd to 3rd primary, 4th to 5th primary, 6th primary to 2nd secondary, 3rd to 6th secondary. If required and if it is possible based on the applications, we also start a girls-only group.
Yes, it is possible to join the course within three weeks from the start date. Participants joining late can make up for the missed lessons and catch-up the knowledge already obtained by the other participants, with no extra costs.
Yes, but it doesn’t happen too often :) In this case, we hope that the participant comes back later to a course or a summer camp! Based on the General Terms and Conditions, if your child stops the course in the first half of the semester, half of the semester's total payment is due. If your child stops after the half lessons of the semester, the total amount of the semester is due.
The course fee of each semester (module) differs based on the number of lessons included in the semester, but can not exceed 25 euros per session of 1h30. The amount due per semester can be paid in one go or in several installemnts (approximately every two months, at a schedule defined in the General Terms and Conditions of the chosen school). The course prices may differ and are determined by the particular school, so please refer to "Our school" menu and select your desired location for exact information.
The returning student discount is available to those students, who have been attending our school for at least one year (2 semesters), or who have been attending our school for at least a semester and have participated in a summer camp.
According to our Logiscool values and principles, if a child misses a session, we always provide an opportunity to make up for it. However, the parents must inform the school via email, 72 hours in advance, except in cases of force majeure.
The school, at its sole discretion, will propose one of the following types of make-up sessions, before the student's next class:
- in another group,
- via online video tutorials or
- via online course or consultation or
- exceptionally via shorter, individual, in class, make-up session. The individual make-up session can not exceed 3 lessons per semester / child.
Yes, but only if the age difference between the siblings is not more than two years. The reason is that in such cases, the older child might get bored. Because of their age difference, the older sibling could advance quicker or the younger one could lag behind as the curriculum may be too easy/difficult for their age.
Our program is designed on several modules and on several years of study. The first module has several lessons and lasts for several months (usually during a school semester, but there are also shorter intensive courses). After completing the first module, students can continue the course either at one of the Logiscool centers or in online format. With each lesson and each module, the complexity of the work tasks increases and thus, they discover and apply new and new notions of programming.
The online course is similar to the one at the school, and is divided in weekly sessions of 90 minutes. Live sessions with a teacher take place via the age-appropriate Microsoft Teams video conferencing platform. The groups have only 6-8 participants, so that the lesson runs optimally for all participants. During the live session, students follow the instructions of the teacher and his screen while implementing in parallel the requirements of the project. For maximum interactivity, students view the instructor's screen and vice versa; they can share their screen for explanations and guidance in projects in real time. The curriculum taught in the online course is the same as the one in the physical course and the same as the one used in all Logiscool schools across Europe, USA, Asia. In addition, students have access to video lessons and quizzes, available after the LIVE sessions to deepen and fix the programming notions.
