Course Overview: Computer Science Independent Study Project 
Through an independent study course, your kids can do a deeper dive into a content area that is of specific interest to them and gain more knowledge, skills, and expertise in this area. They can work on a specific project like:
  • an engineering, science fair, or competition project 
  • a project for a college entrance or scholarship opportunity 
  • a project needed to build a portfolio that will help him/her in his/her career trajectory or work on building specific skills (i.e. coding programs, hardware, systems and processes).
Independent Studies are open to groups from 1-6 students who want to work on a specific project or content area with one of our incredible instructors. Projects and content areas must be within robotics, coding, design, or physical computing. 
What’s Included: This program includes private instruction for the individual/group enrolled in the independent study project. The mentoring instructor will provide knowledge, expertise, support, and collaboration specific to the program goals and objectives with each student(s) in this program.
  • Kids must have taken a minimum of 4 Build a Robot K12 courses
  • Must be a current 9 - 12 grader or have graduated high school within the last 6 months

Satisfaction Guaranteed: Our promise to you. If you and your kid are not happy after the first class, we’ll give you a full refund. Or we can help you find a different course.


What is required for the project proposal?

The applicant (9 - 12 grader) must submit a 2 to 4 page project proposal for his/her independent study course that includes the following information:
  • Goals and objectives for the independent study course
  • Timeline s/he anticipates and any applicable deadlines
  • Content areas s/he would like to cover during this course
  • Current experience within this content area
  • Instructor preference (if applicable)
  • Anything else that is relevant to this proposal
Note: Build a Robot K12 will only accept independent study proposals where there is a good match between the content area that needs to be supported and a mentoring instructor. We want to ensure that the independent study projects are a good fit for all, so that students will have the best chance at reaching their goals and objectives. If we do not think that we are the best support for a project proposal, then we will let you know and make sure that any deposits made for the independent study program are refunded.
