Creators change the world...

Give your child the digital literacy skills they need to shape their future. UME creators work together to formulate and communicate their ideas, employing design thinking while defining, ideating and prototyping their way to success.

Skills for Today and Tomorrow

We've taught over 10,000 students how to create video games, explore big ideas and develop a fundamental understanding and approach to working with technology.

  • Design Thinking Empathize, Define, Ideate, Prototype, Test - a framework for innovation.
  • Critical Thinking Experiment, process information, formulate ideas and break down big problems.
  • Digital Literacy Learn technology and digital tools while bringing big ideas to life.
  • Communication Improve ideas with feedback and skill-sharing across networks, groups, and communities.

Learning Together

Positive learning outcomes increase when students learn together. UME doesn't “Zoom” past engagement. We believe in the power of human connection placing real-time, “hands-on” facilitation and “peer-to-peer” collaboration at the heart of our online platform.
