More and more middle and upper elementary school students and parents are looking for opportunities to learn to code. With Yeti Academy, you can provide that learning experience in any classroom — whether in person or remote.
Yeti Code, our flagship learning module in the Yeti Academy suite, enables students to learn and practice coding in a web-based game environment with both single- and multi-player options. It’s a unique learning platform that will teach your students a vital 21st century skill and let them have fun at the same time.
Building a Strong Foundation through Gamified Learning
Yeti Code begins teaching coding concepts through building blocks. Students learn how to think like a web developer or programmer and arrange commands for a computer to understand.
At first, students play in a single-player game environment that encourages them to master the basics. They will initially have a coding palette that allows them to choose commands as they learn the coding language.
Over time, students will begin to memorize bits of coding language and practice typing their own lines of code.
Progressing to New Levels of Coding Knowledge
Yeti is designed to be a fun and engaging way to teach coding from the basics to advanced levels.
After students gain some expertise, they unlock the option to compete against each other in a multiplayer environment. Teachers can also challenge students by building new levels with our easy-to-use level builder.
Multiplayer coding games reward the fastest and most efficient coder. As students play against their peers, they practice typing code efficiently and gain additional motivation to learn.
Remote or In-Person Learning
Yeti is designed to work in any learning environment, whether in person or remote.
Our web-based platform can be accessed anywhere with an internet connection. Students do not need to be in the same room to play multiplayer games against each other.
The STEM Learning Solution Your School Needs
Technology is becoming an integral part of our workspaces and factories. A strong background in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) will be non-negotiable when today’s middle school students enter the workforce.
In response to the lack of quality STEM education resources, the creators of Typing Agent developed Yeti Academy to help teachers and students at all knowledge levels access STEM concepts. We aim to deliver an amazing and effective in-class or remote experience.
In addition to Yeti Code, Yeti Academy provides a variety of interactive, project-based STEM learning modules. Our lessons are designed for 3rd-9th grade students and beyond. We include a wide variety of learning opportunities in biology, digital citizenship, G-Suite tools, typing, and more.
Yeti modules come with all the teacher resources you need to teach our lessons effectively. We include lesson plans, activities, slide shows, tests, and more resources that can be printed or used in their electronic format.
Teachers and students alike will appreciate our fun, easy-to-use STEM learning platform. Learn more or sign up for your free account!
