“Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.  – Rabindranath Tagore

All our Weekend classes are based on the NSW Curriculum for STEM².  

STEM² stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine.  STEM² combines the positive ideas of hands-on application and interactive environments to teach children.  It is based on the idea that children should not be underestimated in their ability to understand  seemingly difficult subjects. We use STEM² as a learning tool to engage students in Maths, English and Science.  All our classes are based on the NSW Curriculum and are developed by Australian educators.

Au Academy provides coding and programming courses for kids and students in the Hornsby and North Shore area.  Students range from beginning (no exposure to programming) to advanced.

Course Description
Our interactive computer science course is taught by experts and professionals in the fields of IT, ICS, and Programming.  In this interactive course, students are divided by level and ability in computer science knowledge.Computer Languages Taught
We teach students to program in C, C++, Java and Python.  Students will also learn Visual Basic and processing. Students apply the concepts they learned in actual projects, experiments, and inter-class competitions.Results
Our students have programmed several of their own computer games (e.g., Uno, Ping, Battle, Paint, Tic-Tac-Toe). Projects will vary according to each class.
Date, Time and Cost
Our Programming classes are held on Sundays from 1 PM – 3 PM and cost $50 per session. We recommend all interested students to try the class out one time to see if they like it first! (We know programming isn’t for everybody, but when students persist, we have seen remarkable results–in students as young as nine!)
