iSTEM Labs Coding Belts
Just like martial arts, we incent kids to excel in learning by earning Coding Belts. A Coding Belt is an iSTEM Labs logo'd snap on wrist band with built in 4 GB flash drive to save their projects. There are 12 colored belt levels from White to Black Belt. White Belt is earned after the first camp. Each subsequent belt requires 20 to 30 hours of camp time and a test. There is no testing fee or belt fee.
Campers who already have a white or yellow belt will advance to the next belt.
