Parent Testimonials:

"Wow! I really can't say enough about how positive an experience this was for my son. On a whim, I took my 8 year old son to one of CodaKid's "code-a-thon" events, which occur every Friday evening. I was blown away by the entire experience! 

Through the help of the CodaKid instructors, my son made an actual working computer game! He learned how to input and understand how code works as a way of telling the computer what he wanted it to do. I'm not sure I can even put a proper value on the experience.....it was that wonderful."


"I would recommend this to anyone with children that love Minecraft. So much fun, and educational at the same time."

"Awesome instruction on coding for Minecraft. My son had a blast and he had no coding experience at all. The owner and instructors were so great with the kids."
