2016-17 After-School Programs

After-school programs for 2016-17 have ended. Join our mailing list to be the first to know about the fall!


Each visit at the Pixel Academy is a well-rounded tech-learning experience. Members can discover their own spark of creativity in our self-guided makerspace or spend the afternoon honed in on a Big Project in our Designer or Developer stations. Through activity, individual work, and the help of our expert instructions, each visit leads to new ideas, higher skills, and more motivation to work towards something to be proud of.
