Take a Leap
With our Advanced 2.0 program, you'll discover endless possibilities by blending programming and engineering.
Grow your engineering skills with complex components and rigorous new concepts, and learn to build anything with Arduinos.
Delve into Python, one of the most versatile and widely used programming languages, and explore its applications in data science, web/desktop applications, and server work.
Critical Thinking + Synthesis
Combine and apply your engineering and Python skills for a variety of applications from data science to the Internet of Things.
Jumpstart your learning.
Part I: Intro
Start off on the right foot. Begin work with advanced circuits, put together your first few projects with Arduino, and learn fundamental Python techniques and tools.
Part II: Development
Move away from the drawing board and start applying your new knowledge to real world problems. Use your knowledge of circuits and Arduinos to build a metal-detector car and analyze data models to reveal insights in big data.
Part III: Launch
Combine your programming and engineering skills. Build projects ranging from writing an algorithm(or several) for data mining, developing your own full-fledged web application, or creating your own security system with IoT. If you want to launch a product, we'll help you through the entrepreneurship process and get your company up and running.
A Day in the Life.
9:50 am - 10:00 am
We start all of our classes with a recap of the previous day's work to refresh our students' memory, usually with a quirky task or activity (e.g. design a tool to peel eggs). This also serves as a warm-up to get them thinking and ready for a day of building.
Morning Session: Computer Science
10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Classes start off with a short lecture on a specific CS topic. Students will then have the opportunity to implement new ideas in a new project or lab - write a script or program. Afterwards, we'll test and iterate on our code, making sure it runs perfectly. 90% of our time is spent coding; lectures are kept to a minimum.
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Relax and chat inside, or go out for some fresh air and explore the surrounding area (Lower Manhattan is a foodie's dream!). Students are welcome to continue working on their projects or talk to mentors for extra help or guidance.
Noon Session: Engineering
1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We heavily emphasize hands-on work in all of our programs, and Advanced 2.0 is no different. Students will have the opportunity to construct a project from a sketch of instructions using tools like soldering irons and drills, then code a program to run it, and iterate from basic project to full-fledged invention.
Feedback & Recap
3:00 pm - 3:10 pm
We wrap up the day with a final recap, and students are encouraged to share their thoughts on the day's work. Many students stay afterwards for extra mentoring, and they are encouraged to do so.
A learning experience done differently.
We're committed to you
Everybody at Kinet-X has only one goal: to help you get the most out of your experience. When you learn at Kinet-X, you can always expect to have your lingering questions answered, discuss potential ideas and topics with your mentors, and receive meaningful feedback on improving your work.
Programs can start off well, but keeping yourself excited might be a challenge. Our program starts off on a brisk pace and keeps it going until the very end, keeping you on your toes and completely immersed in programming and engineering with exciting activities and enjoyable lessons.
Kinet-X provides students with endless opportunities to grow and learn, and one of the most important opportunities that we provide you is the ability to meet some of the brightest, talented kids in NYC. Together, you'll push each other to strive further and push harder.
One track to success
Our programs are designed to seamlessly connect with one another, providing you with an all-in-one STEM education for your entire journey. To help our families get the most frictionless education experience, we offer all returning students 10% off their next program.
