Students are given the skills and experience to discover, learn, and create more, having taken the first step to mastering computers and software skills. Furthermore, students take home their own unique projects!
Our fast paced yet exciting curriculum inspires creativity in students while incorporating skills from the software industry.
We understand that learning is a highly individualized process. To get the most out of our program, students work with instructors in a 1:4 ratio.
Project Based Learning
Students learn by creating and putting their newly developed skills to use.
Nobody likes being bored. That's why we make our classes fun for all students!
Some of our most recent events are listed. You can view more events on the registration page.
We're excited for our first after school program this fall using the same hands-on learning methods as our summer camps.
We partner with schools and community organizations to give our students the best experience available.
Hear from our happy campers
Students, venues, and parents all say great things about what we do.
The Raspberry Pi campers overwhelmingly respond that they plan to attend next year; they would recommend the Raspberry Pi camp to friends; the overall rating of the camp was noted as being “excellent” and the campers indicated that the activities conducted during camp were considered valuable.
Newark Charter School
A proud host of Ground Up
My son enjoyed Ground Up a lot and has asked to take more Ground Up classes.
He built a very nice game, and he has been showing it to all his friends.
I do recommend the class as it provides kids with good, and current information.
My 12 yr. old son attended the Ground Up Computer Science camp at Newark Charter and loved it! He learned a lot and said that the instructors were very helpful. He enjoyed the camp so much that we are getting ready to sign him up for the Web Development camp later this summer. He also wants to attend the Ground Up camp again next summer and build upon what he learned this year. A career in Computer Science is his goal so this program is right up his alley! Thank you!
Bring Ground Up to your school or community!
We'd love to bring a computer science program to your school or community center. We offer summer camps, workshops, after school programs, and custom solutions to meet your needs.
