Helping Schools Inspire The Next Generation Of Technologists

A student who has never seen a line of code before is unlikely to pursue computer science, but as the mere-exposure effect explains, we display greater affinity for things after even a mere exposure.

What We Do?

Fun

Flappy Bird, Angry Birds, 2048 and more!

Our workshops are full of fun and engaging games.

Learning through playing is the best way students develop a natural curiosity for a subject.

Powerful

We don't just teach, we inspire.

We instill content mastery in students and help them develop life-long passion.

We teach students to seek out resources independently, through school, and beyond.

Student Centric

Made by students. For students.

Our passionate program developers designed the workshops from a student's perspective.

We know what students like, so we design projects that students love. We understand which concepts are most challenging, so we work hard to address them.

Teacher Friendly

Step 1. Turn on computer.
Step 2. Engage. Educate. Empower.

No technical experience necessary!

Our workshops can be taught by virtually anyone. All you need is access to computers, and ideally some teacher assistants.

Our Team

A Group of Creative UC Berkeley Students

About Us

We are a group of UC Berkeley students tired of the status quo, tired of the fact that roughly 90% of students will not be exposed to computer science before college, if at all. In our day and age, that's simply unacceptable.

In November 2015, we banded together to create Paradigm Shift, a computer science curriculum creation and distribution social venture.

Our mission

Excite as Many Students as Possible About Computer Science in the Most Budget Friendly Way for Schools.

Unlike traditional methods of learning computer science (online classes, private tutors, summer camps, etc.) which require students to seek out the resources, we bring computer science to the students, in their very own school and classrooms.
