At Tumo, teens between the ages of 12 and 18 take charge of their own learning, gaining cutting edge skills in the fields that matter today and tomorrow.

Teens combine self-learning activities, workshops and learning labs, picking and choosing from whatever piques their interest.

How it Works

The Tumo learning program is made up of self-learning activities, workshops and project labs around 8 learning targets. Teens combine these into personal learning paths that adapt to their evolving preferences and rate of progress.


Self-learning activities are short, interactive exercises designed to inspire and build up skills. Coaches help with activities by getting learners unstuck, advising, and providing encouragement. There are hundreds of activities to choose from, and most are prerequisites that lead to workshops in each learning target.


Workshops are led by industry professionals from across Tumo’s 8 learning targets. They range from beginner to advanced and culminate in individual or team projects. Each project is published to the participant’s portfolio and is sometimes submitted to competitions and festivals, or published online and on app stores.

Learning Labs

Learning Labs are offered on an ad hoc basis by top technology and design professionals from around the world. Instructors lead advanced labs and work with Tumo teens on real life projects. Labs can last anywhere from a couple of weeks to several months.

Every student at Tumo has a personalized learning plan that is generated by our software. The Path software suggests the best route for each learner to take through the program, and dynamically adapts to their pace and preferences over time. As teens progress through the timeline, completing projects and leveling up, they build up a portfolio of results that becomes their living diploma.
