Denver Software Engineers

computer information best stem academy denver

 

According to a new report, there are only four other North American cities with higher average software engineer salaries than Denver. That’s according to San Francisco-based job search company Hired, which published its 2017 “Global State of Tech Salaries” report, indicating that the average annual salary for a Denver software engineer is $112,000, down 2.63% from a year earlier.

But when you factor in the adjusted cost for living compared with the Bay Area, Denver salaries adjust to $181,000, behind only Austin ($198,000) of the 10 North American cities that were ranked!

Our Why

CodingForKids

 

Parents and students often ask us why we do what we do. I always appreciate someone’s curiosity, and in this case, it’s a welcomed opportunity to not only explain ‘our why’ but to help inform about the rather dire STEM education gap that needs to be filled.

Understanding ‘our why’ begins by understanding that literally everything we do in our lives requires the use of some sort of technology…it is all around us…from the timing of the traffic lights, the air pressure sensor on my car, to my home scale that texts me if my weight fluctuates outside of pre-defined parameters…tech is all around us.

PREVENTING SUMMER LEARNING LOSS WITH STEM SUMMER CAMPS DENVER

STEM Summer Camps Denver keep kids learning

As summer approaches, a very real concern among parents and educators is how best to avoid “summer brain drain”— the loss of all the learning that took place during the school year. Every student is at risk of summer learning loss, which is why the first 6 weeks of the school year are routinely used to re-learn old material, and it can take up to 2 months for a student’s brain development to get back on track. In fact, by the end of the 6th grade, students who experience summer learning loss over the years are an average of 2 years behind their peers who keep their skills sharp during summer months.

Whether your student loves to read, play sports or build robots, the summer provides a perfect opportunity to develop their passions, expose them to new interests and to actually get them ahead. One of the best ways to avoid the summer doldrums is to enroll your child in summer STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) camps. Our STEM Summer Day Camps keep their brains active while they are having lots of fun in activities like programming, robotics, exploring circuitry and sensors, Minecraft modding, editing a video highlights reel, touching up photos, creating 3D designs and more! It’s all about having fun WHILE they learn!

REGISTRATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR DENVER SUMMER DAY CAMPS AT SILICON STEM ACADEMY.

Minecraft Monopoly

A frustrated Mom and I were chatting the other day and she was telling me how much she hates how her daughter shutters herself away in her bedroom to play Minecraft! (this probably sounds very familiar to you if you’re reading my blog to begin with) She went on to make several hilarious comparisons of Minecraft to “pure evil” because her daughter wasn’t outside running around building tree forts, playing with friends, socializing and doing regular everyday kid-things. She went on to say how she was trying to facilitate a family-game-night of Monopoly and how the whole game blew up because her daughter was expected online to play Minecraft with her friends!

The Mom was literally considering therapy for her daughter.

Coding for Kids

As a kid, it must be so cool to have Coding classes like this available.  As a parent, we never had these opportunities at our age - but times are changing fast, and the need for kids to learn coding and programming skills is becoming mandatory in a world driven by software and computer processes.  "Coding for Kids" didn't exist!

Coding is My Sport

Over the holidays I was talking to a Dad who was practically apologizing to me about how his son doesn’t play any sports, and how he was embarrassed by this because he, of course, had grown up playing sports – “you know, like we did” he said – implying how all kids played sports in the past and therefore all kids should play sports now. I quickly broke the news to him that more and more kids/students today, in fact, consider “tech” as their sport – as their passion.
