What's an Orbit?

An Orbit is our framework for classroom instruction. The orbital path of planet or satellite serves as a good metaphor for the Upstream curriculum. Fundamentals and core concepts of a programming language are the basis. Short, repetitive exercises to be completed quickly sharpen skills and generate momentum. Orbiteers work through real-world builds and troubleshooting simulations at difficulty-levels concurrent with their aptitude.
