July 18, 2017, DENVER – Silicon STEM Academy (SSA), a technical training and learning center in Denver dedicated to teaching middle and high school students computer programming, robotics, digital media and other technology skills, has been recognized by Colorado Parent Magazine as the “Family Favorite” winner in the Tutor or Academic Enrichment Educational Services category for 2017.
Colorado Parent Magazine describes a Family Favorite as meeting a set of standards and key criteria including: great value, a trusted resource, superior customer service, having a family-friendly atmosphere and being fun for all ages. Family Favorites, however, go beyond the expected selection criteria in that the recognized programs are compiled from the readers and parents, the greatest judge of all, who have the first-hand experience when choosing an educational after-school enrichment program.
“Our singular mission at Silicon STEM is to enable students with the critical technical skills necessary to be successful for their futures, and to augment standard core curriculum,” said Kelly Scarborough, co-founder of Silicon STEM Academy. “We’re very proud to be recognized by the readers and parents of Colorado Parent Magazine and appreciate their shared commitment to STEM enrichment for their students.”
Fall registration for Silicon STEM after-school courses are open now. Additionally, due to popular demand, SSA now offers a series of online computer programming classes in a variety of languages. Courses range from 18-24 hours of instruction and prices vary depending on the level of the class.
