#Testimonials What Students Say

I liked having exposure to a lot of programs that I had never used before. For instance, I had never used FreeCAD and now I'm using it for projects and in school.

Daniel Soos Previous Participant

This experience was definitely something I will not forget. It was an opportunity to expand on my prior knowledge of coding. This course was very valuable and informative and I liked how involved all the teachers were and how willing they were when helping us learn! o

Elio Genovese Ignite Game Dev Participant

I participated in this course because I aspire to be a software developer. This experience is definitely worth it because I would like to create more games with the knowledge I learned throughout this course.

Justin Shamaica Segundo Ignite Game Dev Participant

I learned how to make things with a 3D creator, which I think is really cool because I never knew how to do that before.

Sophie STEM Hacks Participant

This program provided me with lots of knowledge in the 3D modeling field and the coding field. The sessions were efficiently assembled and presented. Plus, they were extraordinary interesting and straightforward. I would very much love to take another astounding program by mathstronauts!

Enoch Wilson STEAM Engine Participant

My experience with GameDev was amazing! I had a blast. From the instructors, to TAs, to students, everyone was really nice. And learning how to code was really fun!!! I love how the TAs and instructors were there for us when we needed help, and they were very helpful.

Amaan Umair Ignite Game Dev Participant

I liked how interactive and hands-on the program was. The classes were not only focused on learning the content but also getting in practice and personal experience. I would recommend anyone who’s interested in a gateway into Python coding and machine learning to take this course.

Ray Hang Nexus Engineering Participant

I learned about various topics of science including biology, physics, and chemistry. I also learned many soft skills that will help me in high school and post-secondary education. I would recommend this program to anyone because it is a good learning experience!

Zion Jonathan Nexus Science Participant

I learned how to create 3D designs in TinkerCad, backgrounds in Canva and coding a mars animation in scratch (my favourite part!). Everything was awesome and I had a great experience! I used different “stack blocks” to create my mars animation and used different backgrounds and sprites.

Danya Qureshi STEAM Engine Participant

Everything about the program appealed to me. This curriculum drew me in since I wanted to learn python and the basics, which would benefit me in the future because coding is such an important aspect of today’s world. I felt very excited to be a part of this program as it was interesting and challenging.

Sai Santhosh Anumalasetty STEAM Engine Participant

I learned a lot in this program, I’ve made a cool Shopping App, a fun quiz game, and even a 3D model of a satellite I got to design! I loved that it was a relaxed environment that made sure we could keep up and understand what we were doing with no pressure and just have fun learning.

Julia Jakob IGNITE Tech Explore Participant

This course helped me learn an area of STEM that I haven’t learned before. It wasn’t just the aspect of learning that I enjoyed, but the team put their effort to make it fun for students like me, and if you have fun while learning, then I would consider that mission accomplished.

Elizabeth Mathi STEAM Engine Participant

Because of NEXUS, I have developed a real interest in coding.
