Equipping students with the STEM skills needed for today’s workplace
NapaLearns is deeply committed to providing all students with the opportunity to learn and excel in math through coding and robotics.
What is C-STEM?
Using the revolutionary UC Davis C-STEM curriculum, students are able to demonstrate their mastery of advanced mathematical concepts by coding robots that execute complex programs. Students program these robots in a C/C++ environment, learning a practical programming language. Coding skills ensures that students are prepared for and excited about the careers of the future.
NapaLearns seed-funds startup costs for teachers in secondary classrooms who deliver these courses as part of their mathematics curriculum.
Coding and Robotics in Math Courses
In partnership with school districts, we are able to offer middle and high school students math courses with Computing and Robotics, an alternative to the traditional course offering.
Equipping our Classrooms
With UC Davis and Barobo, we equip classrooms with robotics equipment, software, textbooks, and supplies that enable high-quality, hands-on learning experiences. Our funding supports every participating school in launching an after-school robotics club so that students can competitively demonstrate their learning and build perseverance.
Teacher professional development is critical to enabling a successful implementation of the C-STEM program. All of the instructors who teach C-STEM courses go through extensive training that provides them with the skills and mindset needed to teach students how to master mathematics through coding and robotics.
