A Message From Our Founder

“Own the tech, hold the future.”----Kenneth Ma

Scientech future is a project to address the problems of tomorrow. Technology is growing exponentially and knowing how to program is becoming more important than learning a second language; your child needs to be prepared when they face the professional industry or they risk being lost in the next generation of technological advancement. Our vision is to build an army of elite programmers to invent, design and implement the next Facebook, Microsoft or Google.

In a Scientech future classroom, students learn all the aspects of computer science with the most fun and engaging devices. Every learner is given tailored lessons that allows them to grow at their own pace and make significant progress every single lesson.

Bring your child and we will cultivate a genius.
