About Computer Explorers

Computer Explorers is a global company founded in Houston Texas in 1984. Our vision is to help children reach their full potential by using technology as a tool to engage students, enhance the educational process, and prepare them for the future. Children use discovery and cooperative learning to reinforce skills in science, math, and language as they work with computers, digital cameras, robots, electronic microscopes and iPads. We have decades of experience integrating technology into education, and have expanded to scores of locations around the world.

Our branches in China (website is in Chinese only) are part of a single franchise, which is headquartered in Suzhou, near Shanghai. We are growing quickly across mainland China and look forward to welcoming you as part of our expanding team.

Open Positions

We are currently expanding and looking for good teachers. In our flagship training center in Suzhou, China you will assist children aged 3 to 14 to explore all sorts of technology.  In our fun and fast-paced classes, kids learn about computers, rocketeering , digital art, 3D printing, film making and more. We are looking for teachers who are fun, enthusiastic, and eager to learn. Teachers need not have an IT background or have prior teaching experience, although this helps, since we offer any required training and use many pre-prepared modules from our proprietary curriculum.
