All students start with Course 101 which is an introduction to engineering and computer science. We believe all students need the basics before moving on to more advanced material.
Your child’s first kit arrives several days after you become a member. You’ll receive another kit every 3 months.
You’re at the right place! We created Thimble to teach beginners a basic understanding of robotics, computer science, and game design. We assume they have no prior knowledge.
On average, a class takes 4-6 weeks to complete. However, lessons were designed so students learn at their own pace.
Live build-along classes are held once a week to cover advanced topics. Live classes will also include special guests which include industry professionals from top tech and video game companies around the world.
