Blastoff's mission is to teach the world's children about computer programming, creating a powerful generation of problem solvers and creators in the process.
Blastoff ignites curiosity with games that teach computer science fundamentals.
Curiosity leads to engagement and engagement opens the door to learning. Computers are everywhere in our daily lives yet few know how they work. Elementary school students need to learn the basics of computer science in a entertaining and effective manner so they can develop true "digital literacy." Not all kids will become programmers but they all can benefit from understanding how computers work.
Studying computer science leads to improvements in logical problem solving, systems thinking and, interestingly, reading comprehension. In addition, students learn to be determined in the pursuit of a solution and discover that learning is a process and not an end state.
At Blastoff we take our learning very seriously but we are even more dedicated to creating engaging games! Our ultimate ambition is to teach kids how to be creative digital problem solvers so they can meet the biggest challenges of the future head on.
