Telebort

Educate for Future

About Us

Telebort (科技宝) was founded by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) alumni in 2016. We are an EdTech (education technology) startup that aims to empower the young generation in digital making. We are committed to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities (B40).

We are a Digital Academy Platform that provides a full spectrum of computer science education such as learning material, question banks, and real-world projects for kids and teens to learn computer science. 

Dedicated teachers and programmers lead our programs to provide peer-to-peer mentorship that will inspire and educate kids and teens in digital making.

Kids and teens use our platform to learn how to write code, build apps and deploy websites either on campus or in online classes. Students create their digital portfolios that keep tons of source code for creative projects. 

Currently, we have 331+ students who are learning with us on a weekly basis. Altogether our students have built a total number of 6844 digital projects collectively. 

Mission

To enable kids and teens to solve real world problems through coding.

Vision

Bringing people together through education and technology.

Belief

What kids learn today shapes the world we live in tomorrow.

We aim to give every child the skills, confidence, and opportunity to express themselves in the digital world.

Theory of Change

CS education is essential for kids and teen's daily life. However, most experienced school teachers do not have a computer science background. Programmers do not prefer to be involved in the educational field. We are here to address this gap by inspiring young talents to teach computer science.
