For The Classroom

Why Students and Teachers Love NCLab

Our courses are designed for middle schools and high schools. Students find them slightly more challenging but also more fun than other online coding courses. Many return to them at home every day. They learn to embrace the challenge and succeed. They learn to fail and persevere. Teachers prefer NCLab courses because of their rigorous design based on math, logic and problem solving, and the outstanding teacher support.

I just want to say how much the children are enjoying the Karel Course. It is the first year we have really explored this in depth, and I have students aged 14-17 participating. The virtual desktop really works great, the puzzles are challenging and the coding is consistent. It is really helping to challenge their thinking, and they are showing great determination to try and complete each task!”

We have been using Karel in our combined school and it has been really good for all my kids. I have several special-aid kids in there and some gifted kids. The special-aid kids when they have trouble with directions or with keyboarding, are able to just work on those skills, while the gifted kids have taken off and started programming. They absolutely love the program.”
