"I wish I had learned like this when I was a kid"

... is the most common feedback we hear.  Don't let your kids miss out on learning the real thing ...

Read Comics, Learn Coding

We reveal the magic that powers technology.  With PodPi, your kids will learn to code and build circuits through a unique experience and adventure.

PodPi is a series of monthly adventures that will teach your kids electronics and JavaScript coding by building their first simple circuits to WiFi enabled devices and the Internet of Things.  The lessons use our unique comic book format.

 
 

Critical thinking and problem solving through hands-on projects and lessons

We replaced the usual step with stories.  This format engages your child or students in solving problems, critical thinking and hands-on lessons with reduced screen time.  Our subscribers can't wait to see what happens next on the Island.  We hope you will join them too.

No "step by step" because life does not come with a step by step manual.

It's less about mailing a kit, it's changing a mindset

Over the past few years we've observed more and more students come to our workshops looking for step by step instructions.  While a step by step program is generally fun and allows for quick results, most of the time the students lack the understanding and the tinkering that comes with learning.  Time and time again we see kids first hesitate in getting started with our new format, yet within an hour, they are excited and want to keep going. They go on to the next lessons and start experimenting.

Our stories trigger curiosity. Our characters and lessons will engage your children.  We created an environment that promotes trial and error, where their imagination replaces the usual step by step, and where literacy becomes the path to learning.  The balance between hands-on activities and screen-time will keep them close to the real world and learn crucial skills.

We realize that this method is not for everyone.  Yet, we've seen hundred of kids reach their Aha! moment.  These moments are why we design these stories, the lessons, the lame jokes and the challenges.  They're fun and real.  We hope you will join us on these adventures in learning.  We are excited to have you and will help you along the way as needed.  Check out what others have to say.

Thank you for making us part of your kids' future success!
