Real programming skills

With MYTEK LAB, kids learn real programming skills that are used by programmers worldwide. From troubleshooting to actually understanding what the lines of code mean, your kids will work through it all.

– Monica, Mommy Maestra

I’m not sure we could successfully homeschool without LEGO® bricks. (I write this jokingly, but there is some element of truth to the statement.) LEGO® learning can take place across all subject areas, ages, and interest levels. LEGO® bricks will speak to a child when nothing else will, and sometimes they help make a break-through to understanding in a critical math or science concept.
