The challenges of teaching code in schools:

Instructor capacity

Even schools who want to teach code struggle to compete for qualified instructors, those who can help debug projects or push top students further.

Ever-evolving syllabus

Best practices in code change and evolve at the speed of technology. Traditional books and lessons become outdated quickly.

No commercial alternative

While many organizations exist for sourcing on-line curriculum components, none specialize in delivering a unified code curriculum built for youths and teens and updated at the speed of technology.

Code builds confidence

Learn Code
Codelcious offers in-person, progressively challenging coding classes for kids and prides itself on a safe, supportive and collaborative learning culture.
Build Confidence
All classes contain coding projects, a confidence building component, collaboration among teams and internet safety and security modules. Because at Codelicious, we believe code builds confidence.
Have Fun
Classes are offered at a variety of levels beginning with basic coding skills and concepts, including learning Scratch, Java, JavaScript, and Python coupled with web development, app development, digital design, and hardware integration.

It’s more than just learning to
code . . . it’s about listening and
understanding the problem.
