Computer Programming

Our proprietary curriculum is developed by industry and domain experts investing hundreds of hours in research and development to create the best Coding & Robotics program for your child.

Special Offer!! Pay for 2 programs, attend all 4.

Plus a 2 week money back guarantee.

Your child's prolific coding journey with Thinking Feet

our approach

Your child will go beyond Coding and become a better creative thinker, planner, problem solver in the world of Technology​

Our program is run by expert coaches.

We do NOT have students sit with a booklet following instructions, instead we draw out their individual creativity and energy in a collaborative learning environment.


Our students learn to take risks & chances, and embrace failure along the way to learning and success. This has implications beyond just technology enrichment. This journey of coaching and development takes time, which is why our programs span 8 - 12 weeks per unit. To meet this objective, we develop our own curriculum...none of the available online curriculum (free or paid) come even close to what we offer.

What do our classrooms look like?

In our classrooms, you will find a lot of hand raising, diverse set of ideas and thoughts flying all across....students experimenting, making mistakes and learning as they go along....The energy is palpable.
