Our students learn algorithmic thinking, which is a very valuable, even if not all of them will become programmers. We will help them learn new programming languages and technologies by letting them play games relevant to their age group, using their acquired skills. The individual and group activities significantly enhance the creativity, problem solving and communications skills of the children. It is very important that the children feel the experience of being successful and they become open and brave to initiate their ideas. This will positive 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 instructors/trainers are enthusiastic young university 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 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 open house events in our schools regularly, typically during the application period, before the start of semesters. Students and their parents interested in our courses are all welcome at these events. During these open house events, 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 open house events, please click on the Schools menu item and select the desired school location.
In the academic year 2018-2019 our programming courses include computer game and application design, robotics, and for the first-grade students we also organize a digital basics 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 camps typically during school holidays. During the winter or spring break, we hold 3 to 4-day long camps, while in the summer holiday we organize weekly camps (5 days). We host camps around various topics like programming, application design, robotics, Minecraft and website design/video editing camps for the participants.
In the academic year 2018-2019 our courses start in October in Florida. Please select our Schools menu item and click on the desired school location to double-check the start date. The second-semester courses begin in February 2019. In this academic year, our courses finish at the end of May. The curriculum of our courses consists of modules built on each other and running for several years. Number of years are required to learn how to program at an advanced level, similarly to learning a foreign language or to obtain musical virtuosity.
Students participate in one session per week including 2x45 minute classes with a 10-minute break in between. We offer our sessions on weekdays starting from 3:30 PM and 5:30 PM on Saturday mornings from 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM. For more information, please click here... The earlier start times are recommended for elementary school students.
Our beginner students are grouped based on their age. We offer separate groups for children attending the 1st and 2nd grade, 3rd to 5th grade, 6th to 8th grade and 9th +year. If required and 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 to learn the knowledge obtained by the other participants.
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, only the payment of the monthly installment for the already started month is required, however you don't have to pay the additional installments.
The course fee is payable in equal monthly installments of $200 during the academic year, except for payments for partial months. An academic year consists of 2x15 weeks; one session consisting 2x45 minute classes. The course prices may differ and determined by the particular school.
The returning student discount is available to those students, who have been attending our school for at least one year, or who have been attending our school for six months and participated in a summer camp. The discount gradually increases according to the length of school attendance.
According to our Logiscool values and principles, if a child misses a session, we always provide an opportunity to make up for it. The timing of the makeup session is always agreed on by the parent and the school coordinator.
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 differential the older sibling could advance quicker or the younger one could lag behind as the curriculum may be too easy/difficult for their age.
