What are workshops like?
What pre-requisites does my child need to have?
If you have any questions contact us
Can my child try a workshop before committing?
Who are the instructors?
Do I need to stay with my child during the workshop?
FutureLeague coaches are all highly trained, college educated, enthusiastic individuals who love technology as much as your child (maybe even more). They are highly selected and often domain experts in the areas they coach. Sometimes, the CEO, Emmie even jumps in to coach, because she loves building things and can't resist the fun!
Can my child participate in workshops from multiple tracks?
Sure! We offer two weekends of free sample workshops prior to the start of each cohort so your child can decide if it's something they enjoy before investing in a full track. We typically start new cohorts two times a month. If you decide to purchase a pack, we also offer a 100% money back guarantee after your first workshop.
Yes. Sign up for a 10 pack and split them between two tracks or two kids. the credits do not expire. However, to gain the most value, each track has a recommended progression that we suggest sticking to.
None! Most of our workshops require a laptop. If you have one, bring it. If you don’t, we have ones that you can borrow. Just let us know when you register.
How do the packs of workshops work?
No need, however, we welcome you to stay if you want. We find that kids are more creative and courageous when their parents aren’t there. Feel free to drop them off and come back for the presentations 15 min before the end of each workshop.
The packs of workshops are designed to follow the progression for each track. However, you are welcome to use the bundles on multiple kids, whenever you feel like attending. You must pre-register and sign up for a workshop ahead of time to reserve your spot. These never expire and can be used at any location.
This is NOT school! All workshops are 2 hours in length and feature a blend of project, instruction, and reflection time. Instruction time (interactive lecture) does not exceed 10 min on average. Kids can explore in small groups, individually, and with the assistance of a coach. Each workshop features fewer than 8 kids per coach.
