Enriching Education: BYJU's FutureSchool Math and Coding Summer Program

During the summer, parents often look for summer enrichment programs for their kids - and for many parents, that's a higher priority this year after a unique and challenging school year. Online education technology company BYJU’S FutureSchool, is launching its first U.S. online math and coding Summer Program with a partnership with former NASA Astronaut Scott Kelly. 

Coding is a great way for kids to learn problem-solving skills for complex problems and can also help with persistence, collaboration, and communication. It can improve engagement by giving kids real-world scenarios and visible results.

The BYJU'S FutureSchool Summer Program includes 6-week and 12-week coding courses and a 14-week math course, which result in the child creating either a space themed game, a space themed app or a math space mission. Some of the projects include simulating the docking of a real spacecraft on the international space station or joining astronauts and scientists on project NEEMO (NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations), the world’s only undersea research station.

The summer program includes live webinars hosted by Kelly where he will play the role of motivational coach while sharing his life experiences on endurance and perseverance. My husband and I have read his book, and I think that alone would be a fantastic experience; after a year in space and the journey it took to get him there, he has a very interesting background and an experience that few other people have had.

BYJU's FutureSchool offers one-to-one teacher to student or group classes. The proprietary activity-based coding curriculum helps children learn concepts through creating and building applications, facilitated by a highly trained teacher. The math program is anchored on storytelling to help students learn in an engaging manner while learning real-life applications. The online classes allow for flexibility and a schedule that can meet any kid's schedule, without parents having to disrupt their own schedule by bringing them somewhere.

Parents can book a free trial class by signing up at byjusfutureschool.com. For a limited time, BYJU’S is offering their Summer Program classes at discounted prices starting $12 per class for a group class of up to four students and $25 per class for one-on-one instruction. The summer program runs through Aug. 31, 2021.
