The Fire Tech curriculum team works tirelessly to design new and innovative programmes that give students the best possible experience. That means:

AN INTERACTIVE EXPERIENCE: We give students real-time teaching and constant support, while using interactive digital tools like video calls, collaborative whiteboards, and screen sharing. What better way to learn about technology than to use it?

LEARN THROUGH PLAY: kids love our courses because they learn through play. Activities and games are scheduled into the day, and we also include sunshine breaks and movement activities to make sure students do not sit for long periods.

EXCITING CONVERSATIONS: Kids are naturally curious. We love to prompt conversations that help them understand the world around us and develop critical thinking. We might look at examples of how modern companies use robots or wonder how Pac Man got its shape.

NEW FRIENDSHIPS: real human connection has been a big part of why kids are enjoy our courses. In between lessons, they might introduce their pets, talk about the posters in their room or just show their colourful personalities.

A MASTERPIECE TO TAKE HOME: Fire Tech has a project-based pedagogy, meaning everyone graduates from Fire Tech with something tangible that they created to share proudly with family and friends.
