Why Imagine STEM Academy, here is a short read on the 7 reasons to choose Imagine STEM Academy.
A few years ago we launched Imagine Technology, we started by providing digital solutions to those who needed them, We were making progress and we kept on expanding, but we felt there was a need to do more and be more.
Then we reflected on our early childhood memories, things we wished we had been taught whilst growing up, things we wished we had learned in the early days of our lives but couldn’t because we were constrained by our environment and resources.
Given the fact that there are other kids out there that wish to be all and more but couldn’t because they lack the resources. The academy arm of the company (IMAGINE STEM ACADEMY)was incorporated, but as much as this post isn’t about how we started but rather, the 7 reasons why you should choose our academy, perhaps, a little bit of background insight will help in your decision making.
We swung into action. We partnered with schools, private and government organizations, and tech giants like Google to deliver digital literacy to kids who are passionate about technology. It’s been six solid years and we have certified over 4000 kids.

During sessions, learners learn in a conducive environment that allows them to learn efficiently. When learners fall, they are encouraged to try again and again until they get it right. We teach students to embrace mistakes as a learning process and stress that failure is nothing but a learning experience. This allows students to build confidence and resilience, which will enable them to keep going when the going gets rough.
- Encourage Teamwork:
We teach students of all ability levels. Students of varying levels of ability can work together in teams to find solutions to problems, build together, code together, design together, etc. The result is students who understand how to collaborate with others and thrive in a team-oriented environment. We leverage human social interaction to help students learn together and collaborate on tasks together.
- Problem Solving Skills:
Students learn to solve problems by using their critical thinking skills. During physical sessions or virtual, students learn how to examine problems and then create a plan to solve them. We are intentional about helping our students develop both technical and soft skills. These skills will help them navigate life seamlessly.
- Flexibility Knowledge Application:
With a flexible coaching approach, students with different abilities are made to learn together and are also taught skills that can be used and applied in the real world. Students are motivated when they know that what they are being taught is useful and has a real-life use case. This spurs their interest to learn and acquire skills that have an impact on them and the people they care about. The ability to apply their knowledge to new and novel tasks will bode well for them as they grow.
- Instructors are trained to teach and are super passionate:
Our instructors are value-centric and passionate educators. They make lessons memorable for the students. All our instructors have years of software development experience, robotics, digital marketing, designs, etc. They have a deep understanding of the material and are happy teaching it. When students can interact with teachers who love the material and have such a deep grasp of it, they can’t help but be inspired to be awesome.
