Teaching Philosophy

Digital Dragon’s staff teaches in-depth concepts while instilling the attitude of not just consuming tech, but creating it. Courses are structured so students are exposed to a wide swath of technology and we believe exposure will help kids figure out their true tech passions. We have found that students learn best with a mix of individual, collaborative, and peer-to-peer instruction that caters to various styles of learning. We teach electronics, robotics, game design, digital design, storytelling, programming, and engineering in a project based context.
