After-School Tracks

Pixel Academy offers the most relevant, relatable, and cutting-edge STEM education for kids in NYC. We convert fun, popular interfaces like Minecraft and YouTube into critical learning experiences, teaching fundamentals in tech topics like coding, 3D design, animation, and media production. Our year-round, expert instructors personalize our signature, 90-minute, hands-on workshops after school at our Brooklyn location, using our hand-crafted curriculum and teaching methodologies. Our after-school Tracks are designed to use your child’s interests to guide them through learning advanced STEM skills and cutting-edge technology.

We’ve carefully crafted each Track and packed them with innovative and exciting projects that are geared to specific age groups. By limiting the age range within a group we’re able to best match your child’s learning speed and style.

We’ve divided each Track into three seasons to help you coordinate and plan your child’s school year. Every season has fresh projects, allowing it to stand on its own, and giving you the flexibility to take a single season without committing to the full year.
