The After-School Technology Program

Learn, Play & Engage

In an effort to bridge the technology gap between underserved and marginalized elementary and middle school youth and the general population, Osiris Organization has partnered with Saint Paul Public Schools (SPPS) to provide coding instruction through the Freedom School Express (FSX), Extended Day Learning (EDL) and Flipside afterschool programs.  The current school locations are Benjamin E. Mays, Capitol Hill Magnet and Hazel Park Preparatory Academy.

Coding 4 Kidz

Welcome to the exciting world of coding! 

Our coding program is designed to teach the basics of coding in a fun and interactive way. Students will learn how to create their own games, animations, and stories while developing critical thinking, problem-solving, and creativity skills.

We use a platforms such as Tynker.com, Google CS First, and other online programming platforms that utilize visual coding blocks that make coding easy and intuitive. Students drag and drop blocks to create code that makes characters move, jump, and even talk! They’ll learn about loops, conditionals, and variables without even realizing it.  We also provide text based coding instruction for the more advanced student.

Our goal is to expose our Saint Paul youth to the arena of coding and join the millions of kids around the world who are learning 21st Century technology disciplines and changing the world!
