Welcome to iMyque Code Academy.

iMyque Code Academy has a vision to give the next generation opportunity to define technology. To hand them the leverage to actively participate in shaping a far more technologically driven world than the one we currently live in. To be relevant and compliant with the new definition of “literacy”.

 
Promoting Creativity & Curiosity

Promoting Creativity & Curiosity

A life without curiosity is quite simply a boring life. It’s the power of the curious mind that has made humans as advanced and as imaginative as we find ourselves today.

Problem Solving & Thinking Skills

Problem solving & Thinking skills

“We always hope for the easy fix: the one simple change that will erase a problem in a stroke...Instead, success requires making a hundred small steps go right - one after the other, no slipups, no goofs, everyone pitching in.” ― Atul Gawande

Creating Tomorrow's Technology

Creating Tomorrow's Technology

We cannot predict the future, but we can invent it. The way to cope with the future is to create it. The best way to predict the future is to invent it — and we had better start now.

About Us

We are raising a generation of Africans who will shift their focus from just consuming technology, to defining, creating and shaping it - equiped with the language of technology. We ignite the innate creativity in children that will lead to the invention of the next world class products and services.
 

Our team consist of seasoned software developers, educationists and IT Business Analysts with several years of experience and education. We are constantly on the bleeding edge of technological growth, this enables us to bring to our clients, the best there is.

About iMyque Code Academy

We teach children from age nine (9) to seventeen (17) years, how to code in an engaging and fun way. The lessons are presented in form of games using instruction blocks (this method is used to teach undergraduates at University of California, Berkley campus and Harvard University) to mimic lines of code. This guarantees the children’s attention through out the lesson.

We also have unplugged activities, where children work in small teams, to help children get a grasp of the various programming concepts before the practice it on the computer. By applying peer programming methodology, we encourage the children to learn to work together and communicate effectively, and in the process developing their interpersonal skills.

  • Learning to write programs stretches your mind, and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains.

    Bill Gates, Founder, Microsoft Inc.

  • Learning to code makes kids feel empowered, creative, and confident. If we want our young women to retain these traits into adulthood, a great option is to expose them to computer programming in their youth.

    Susan Wojcicki, Senior Vice President, Google

  • Computer science needs to be part of the core curriculum - like algebra, biology, physics, or chemistry. We need all schools to teach it, not just 10%.

    Brad Feld, Managing Director, Foundry Group

  • All students in the 21st century need to have the opportunity to learn coding starting in elementary school. It is exciting for kids and introduces them to thinking skills that are critical for the digital age and that promote the study of computer science.

    Esther Wojcicki, Vice Chair, Creative Commons Board of Directors

  • So we need to admit that "ICT in schools" has become a toxic brand. We have to replace it with a subject that is relevant, intellectually sustaining and life-enhancing for students. For want of a better name, let us call it computer science.

    John Naughton, Professor, Author of From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg

  • In the 21st century, learning to program computers is one of the most valuable skills we can teach our young children, no matter what career they choose.

    Dr. Alan Goodwin, Principal, Walt Whitman High School

  • Computing lets people express their creativity and unlock solutions, and code is computing's universal language. All young people, including girls, deserve to be fluent in the language of the future.

    Lucy Sanders, CEO & Founder, NCWIT

  • Learning to speak the language of information gives you the power to transform the world.

    Peter Denning, Association of Computing Machinery, former President

  • All of today’s kids will need—along with reading, writing, and arithmetic—a basic understanding of computation and the role that it plays across a wide range of disciplines. Coding is engaging and empowering. It’s a necessary 21st Century skill.

    Jan Cuny, Program Officer, National Science Foundation

  • Students, parents, teachers, and policymakers will benefit greatly by recognizing the foundational importance of coding and computer science in our education curricula.

    Michael Honda, U.S. Congressman, California

  • I think everyone should learn how to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think. I view computer science as a liberal art, something everyone should learn to do.

    Steve Jobs, Founder of Apple Inc

  • Coding is today’s language of creativity. All our children deserve a chance to become creators instead consumers of computer science.

    Maria Klawe, President, Harvey Mudd College

  • Coding gives you the basis to understand the world of today and control the world of tomorrow. There are few more rewarding experiences one can have.

    Jeff Skoll, Founder, Participant Media

Our Courses

We teach children and teenagers how to code starting with instruction blocks to real wold promgramming languages, demystifying computer science and showing students that it’s fun, collaborative, and creative.

We help them imbibe logical thinking and problem solving skills, which are needed beyond the realm of cyberspace.
 

Introduction to Programming

This course introduces children to the world of programming, they begin by solving puzzles with sequence of steps using instruction blocks. Then they move to learning the fundamental concepts of programming with JavaScript language - the de facto language of the web. At the end of this course students use the skills they have learnt to make a game.

Web Development Fundamentals

HTML is the the foundation behind all web pages. It's used to add structure and form to text, images, and more. CSS is the language used to style HTML content. In this course, students will learn the fundamentals of both languages so that they can create visually appealing web pages. At the end of this course students will build a website.

Advanced Web Development

This course takes students’ understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript and apply them in learning how to build single-page web applications with a popular JavaScript framework. They will be introduced to an industry standard programming pattern. At the end of this course students will build a blog application.

Server Side Web Programming

More often than not, applications need to store or process large amounts of data. Therefore this course introduces students to PHP - one of the simplest server-side languages out there, and MySQL - the database system behind most data driven websites and web applications. At the end of this course students will develop, manage and store the data for the blog application in the previous course.

Mobile App Development

Mobile has come to stay, in fact some have prophesied the death of PC. Therefore our curriculum would not be complete without teaching the kids how to make mobile apps. At the end of this course, students will build a mobile Todo app to help them manage daily tasks.

SUPPORT

We ensure that no child is left behind. We hand-hold children that need more attention until they catch on.
