Class experience

Students learn to pay attention to detail, to think critically, and to be patient by designing, creating, and programming one prototype of a mobile app. 

As an engineer by trade, an educator by heart Lucy Tamez founded Bright & Smart in 2005. We have been teaching and developing our programs for the past 15 years. We create our programs with students learning experience in mind; we want them to learn to love STEM, and to develop their higher cognitive skills and natural abilities, we help them to see themselves as creators of technology.  
Homework Offered
