Countdown to the Classroom - Education of Tomorrow, Today

Countdown Institute is a Miami-based education startup using context based learning to teach computer science and programming. We use real life examples in the context of space exploration to teach these principles.


One of our founders, Ajit Jaokar, teaches machine learning and IoT at Oxford University in UK. Ajit recently worked with 400 computer science teachers to develop curriculum changes in Europe. Countdown Institute's approach to context based education is a clear result of Ajit's experience with these teachers.


Countdown to the Classroom will make our premium Code in Space curriculum available to all Miami-Dade students. Specifically, we are developing a curriculum that will train and teach the teachers who will mirror our faculty during teaching of the course. The teacher would then be able to teach the course going forward.
