Youth Enrichment Courses
Students today are under-equipped to work in the digital economy. Knowledge and skills taught in traditional curricula are insufficient, and purchasing professional tools is a financial burden.
Working with world-class industry professionals and software developers, Krystal Institute brings employable skills and free, open-source software to the classroom. Our students pick up tangible skills from a diverse range of DECT workshops that are project-based and experiential. Site visits with our industry partners expose students to the applications of DECT in professional settings.
Our courses cover exciting themes such as Animated Arts, Virtual Worlds, Metaverse, Maker Series, and Digital “ABCD”. Graduates from our courses receive certification under our DECT Global Series curriculum, which is recognized by our industry and academic networks in the Greater Bay Area.
