Welcome to kidOYO® at Stony Brook University!

This learning community has been actively running live events since 2013. As professional software developers, product developers, engineers and mentors, kidOYO® is leading development of methods used to help young learners engage complex subjects in the areas of computer science, engineering, coding and entrepreneurial development

Unlike corporate-funded programs that feed education markets with easy-bake-oven methods or serve gender/racial segregated learning communities as priority. kidOYO® builds skills for ALL types of learners, of all ages, from K-12 and into University settings. If you are new to this type of learning, ask around. kidOYO® is not easily discovered on Facebook/Instagram or in paid media advertising where digital illiteracy reigns supreme. Our reputation travels locally by word of mouth, and our students speak for the quality of experience they have at kidOYO® year after year

Our learning platform is used by nearly 85,000 students on Long Island, NY alone, and top school districts trust kidOYO® to deliver the best tools, curriculum and methods of instruction necessary to transform production-grade learning in the digital domain. By working across the curriculum, integrating student-interest and personal learning methods with math, english, science, social studies, and every other field of study, our mentors are transforming learning in a manner that is unique in all the world

Many of our students over the years have pushed the pace of what is considered possible; winning robotics competitions and earning personal awards as top programmers in the Nation, and earning University credit by taking the AP Computer Science A + Principles tests while still in 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grade

Our team covers many areas of learning, and works with many different paced learners. This community is designed for learning in Live Events, by students aged 8-17. For students interested in specific topics who are outside our region, we also offer learning communities that enable our mentors to work directly with students virtually at all times. You may also review these communities below, where each provides a link to a distinct learning community
