Code-a-thons are an excellent introduction to what we do at CodaKid! During our Code-a-thon events, our instructors prepare a fun Java coding challenge for participants.

While being mentored and given hands-on instruction from our coding instructors, each student works for two hours to create a new Mod for Minecraft.

While they are learning to code in Java, each participant is taught important programming skills, digital art techniques, and game design concepts.

After the class, the instructors email parents instructions detailing how students can install their mod at home.
