After School Program for Kids & Teens in Westchester County

The Digital Arts Experience (The DAE) of White Plains is now offering custom designed After School programs in Westchester County. In addition to their regularly scheduled classes that include 2D/3D Animation, Graphic Design, Java Coding, Moviemaking, Web Design with HTML/CSS and more, The DAE is pleased to now be able to personalize your child’s experience even further. The DAE’s classes are 100% hands on and focus on collaboration so your teen will develop social, technical and creative skills. The programs enable kids to work with the most up to date digital arts tools and technologies.

With the ability to customize programs, your child and their friends can get the private and personalized attention that they deserve at their desired time; after school or on weekends.

Ed Vaizey, UK Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries once said, “Computer skills are the grammar of the 21st Century.” But not enough schools have the budget or funding for these types of programs. According to http://www.code.org/stats:

  • Computer science is the highest paid college degree

  • Computer programming jobs are growing at 2X the national average

BUT…

  • Less than 2.4% of college students graduate with a degree in computer science

  • 9 out of 10 schools don’t even offer computer programming classes

  • In 36 of 50 states, coding classes don’t count towards high school graduation math or science requirements

Code.org preaches an important message: “What most schools don’t teach” with BIG names to back it up: Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, will.i.am, Chris Bosh, Jack Dorsey, Tony Hsieh, Drew Houston, Gabe Newell, Ruchi Sanghvi, Elena Silenok, Vanessa Hurst, and Hadi Partovi. Directed by Lesley Chilcott, executive producers Hadi and Ali Partovi.

These guys MUST think it’s pretty important! So why aren’t you doing something about it? Talk to you child about the importance of learning a new language – code, design, technical computer skills! And bring their friends along!

  1. This is great! I forwarded it to The Salvation Army folks in White Plains. They have a good sized after school program. KL
