Award-winning virtual entrepreneurship, coding, and robotics after school club for kids opens new enrollment (3-minute read)

7 to 14-year-olds from the fully virtual after school program, Rocket Club, have been making headlines in Entrepreneur Magazine and Forbes since the club opened in 2019. Rocket Club has members from around the world that have launched their own businesses, learned to code, and built robotics.

The most impressive part of the club is the network the members have been introduced to in the past year, including getting to meet founders from companies like Netflix, Beyond Meat, and Casper Mattress, political figures like Andrew Yang, directors from movies and shows like The Minions and the Kids Baking Championship, and executives from companies like Apple, Uber, Twitter, and more.

I recently looked at Rocket Club’s feedback from parents and was blown away by their reviews. They have 100% positive reviews, and what strikes me about the 48 5-star reviews is that they are written with so much passion.

One review that stands out is:

“My 10-year-old daughter and 12-year-old son joined Rocket Club online classes this past summer. Initially, I was hesitant about their interest level in doing an online class after spending so much time doing remote school. However, I have been struck by how engaged they are in the Rocket Club classes and the fun they are having. The teachers and the staff treat the children respectfully in an exploration process that discusses ideas, the creativity behind making something, as well as the execution process of a product. Alex and his team have figured out how to bring elements of the progressive education model where students’ ideas are encouraged to be shared, discussed, carried out, and learned from. Both of my children look forward to the classes and Rocket Club Live. We have also noticed in our kids a new level of confidence and interest in discussing business, science, and technology-related topics with us. This program keeps impressing us with its thoughtful regard for the students and how to be relevant in what it is teaching.” — Liz from New York

Because the club is fully virtual, members attend Rocket Club from around the world. Rocket Club provides scholarships for families who qualify, leading to a very diverse membership base. Some members attend Rocket Club up to 6 times a week. There is a mandatory 1 hour class with a dedicated instructor, and then other activities that are optional, such as advanced coding, advanced robotics, 3D printing, RC Supergirls, chess, educational trivia, networking with successful executives, and more.

Success stories that have come out over the last few months are:

Rocket Club’s enrollment for their incoming class (which starts February 1, 2021) is limited, so book a session soon because the next time you can sign up will be September 2021. To sign up for an information session visit their sign-up page: Rocket Club Admissions

Also, if you want to get a deeper understanding of the program and the inspiration for Rocket Club, their Founder did an “Ask me Anything” on Quora this week. I highly recommend this 10 minute read!
