We help teenagers build Computational Thinking skills to solve practical problems – the sort tech companies face every day. Computational Thinking is an algorithmic problem solving approach that uses strategies from George Polya’s problem solving methodology: decomposition, pattern recognition, abstraction, and algorithm design.

We have enriched the four steps of computational thinking by creating a “playground” that transforms complex problems into concrete processes. Polyup aims to enhance creativity in the learning process and let learners develop their own knowledge. It also serves as a comprehensive playground to address real-life problems on a related project platform.
