Self-Paced Flex Classes

Create your own video game and more while learning at your own pace. Ages 7-10

Flex Classes

Flex classes allow students to work at their own pace using video tutorials and guided activivities.  This may also be helpful if your schedule doesn’t permit your child to attend one of our live classes.  Our flex classes are offered via the Outschool platform.

About The Instructor

Our coding and video game design classes are taught by owner and lead instructor, Shawn D. Walk.  He has been an educator for over 20 years. He was a 4th/5th grade teacher for 11 years at an elementary school north of Pittsburgh. During his time at that school, he focused on project-based learning and engaging students with real-world tasks that allowed them to see how what they were learning is used in the real world. He also developed a passion for technology and worked to include that in his teaching. Shawn developed several robotics and coding programs during his time as a teacher and helped students learn essential 21st century skills in a fun and exciting way.

About 7 years ago, He started a company in Pittsburgh that partnered with schools to offer coding, Minecraft, and other creative classes. The company was one of the first organizations in the Pittsburgh region to use Minecraft to create engaging programs for students. He now hopes to take this type of fun and creative learning beyond the Pittsburgh region to students all over the world.

Shawn has an active Pennsylvania Teaching Certification and a Masters Degree in education.  He looks forward to helping your child discover their creative powers.
