REX offers programming classes for first graders through high school seniors. Our younger students learn to program with age appropriate educational programming languages developed by MIT, Carnegie Mellon, University of Virginia, and the University of California – Berkeley among others. Our middle and high school learners learn the same programming languages as the professionals. We also offer classes that will prepare students to take and pass the AP Computer Science Exam.
Our weekly courses meet or exceed state and national education standards for STEM and computer science curriculum. Our Courses are divided into multiple session units. Each unit was designed by a collaborative team of educators and computer scientist and features our unique combination of step-by-step instructions, open-ended tasks, quizzes, hands-on activities, and a final project or exam.
