Be Future Ready NOW
Self-driving cars, Siri and AlphaGo are just a few examples of how AI and Machine Learning is transforming our lives. Software and robots are increasingly more capable of handling tasks previously carried out by humans, and this is just the beginning! To many, technology presents a huge challenge to the human race; to us at Cobo Academy, we see unprecedented opportunities for our next generation to thrive.
A New Language for ALL
As parents, we understand the importance of learning English and Mandarin at an early age. In the digital economy where every company is a software company, coding is the new language of technology every child should master. Whether or not your child aspires to be an engineer, early exposure to coding develops their logical problem-solving skills, unleashes their creativity, and empowers them to freely express themselves.
“In 15 years we'll be teaching programming just like reading and writing... and wondering why we didn't do it sooner." Mark Zuckerberg, CEO & Founder of Facebook
Why Cobo Academy?
Our innovative curriculum is designed to augment formal education and is the collective brainchild of experienced coders, educators – many of whom happen to be parents!
By embracing Problem-based Learning and the guiding principle of well-proven Computer Science programs in US and Israel, we develop your child’s core skills for the present and their future: Digital Literacy, Critical Thinking & Problem Solving, Creativity and Collaboration.
Your child is unique! Using small class (typically between 4:1 to 8:1) teaching, student learning is optimized to their needs and their pace. Our instructors share the same passion for children and technology, and are trained to explain rocket science in paper airplane terms!
Every session is FUN and interactive, encouraging our students to freely express themselves and unleash their inner curiosity.
We are a dynamic team of veterans in tech and education who share the same passion and vision for the future of technology. We wake up every morning thinking about how we can transform education to cultivate future creators.
