Become a coding superstar

After School Class in Bergen

Nine in ten parents want their kids to learn computer science.* However, this education is lacking in our schools.

At CurlyBrackets, we believe that if kids learn about programming, technology and business they can achieve great things. They can build whatever they want, be it games, websites or apps.

This course is designed to teach kids about how technology works, learn how to program and build fun projects. The best way to learn is to bring your own ideas to light and build your own projects.

This course is for kids aged 12 - 19 and runs after school from March to June.

Course starts week 12

What if we told you that we can give your child a solid foundation in programming in just 5 months?

Self-driving cars, drones, artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality will dominate industry by the time your child is an adult. This technology will be prevalent in virtually every industry from medicine to construction, education, finance. The people who understand and design this type of technology will have lifelong advantages.

Did you know that the founders of Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, Tesla, Twitter, AirBnB and Minecraft all started programming when they were kids?

By understanding technology you get to take part in shaping and building the future.

That's where CurlyBrackets comes in.

Here's how we're different

Expert teachers

We believe that great education starts with a great teacher. An engaging teacher can be the different between a bored classroom and a class where the students feel inspired to learn. Our teachers are professionals that are good at what they do and want to share what they know with eager students.

Personalized

We all learn in different ways. At Curly Brackets, we take time to get to know each and every student so that we can provide the best framework for every student to succeed. Our class sizes are small and our teachers give appropriate challenges to all the students. Regardless of age, interest or skill level.

Focus on building

Learning does not take place in a vacuum. Kids want to know why they are learning something. By starting with the end result in mind, we can break down the problem into smaller steps and then start building. This makes so much more sense, because at each step we know exactly why we are solving it and what it is leading to.

A school for everyone

Does your child have Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, ADD, ADHD, Aspergers, etc? These conditions do not need to be a hindrance in learning for kids. The reality is that many successful people (especially programmers!) have these conditions. We believe it is a strength, rather than a weekness. Contact us to talk about how we can support your child.

What are parents saying?

Anne Romslo
My son, 13 years old, is very happy about the After School class at CurlyBrackets. He learns a lot and comes home with a smile. His fellow students and the teacher is great, he says. I feel that he is acquiring important skills that will be an advantage later in life, and at the same time he is having a lot of fun right now. It seems that CurlyBrackets' way of focusing on game making is very intriguing and sparks an interest in programming. I am very happy about the course.
Knut Hørthe
I signed up my 13 year old son for CurlyBrackets that teaches kids about programming, technology and entrepreneurship through building games and websites. We are very happy about the course and my son looks forward to every class. I recommend CurlyBrackets to kids who are not scheduled for the national team of football.

Meet the instructor

I'm Aleksander Malde. A programmer, designer, entrepreneur, teacher and co-founder of Curly Brackets.

My greatest interests are education and learning and I spend a major part of my time coming up with new and exciting ways for students to acquire knowledge and understand things deeply.

Many a child, and teenagers alike, have been educated in the craft of game development under the reign of my might… I taught a lot of kids how to code cool stuff!
