Back to School, Win a School Contest!

So why talk about "back to school" now? We know most of you are already wondering what's going to happen and planning for the start of school again for this coming September and are worried about the complexities of doing so in an online environment. If coding is what you are attempting to teach, then consider EduCode Academy as your partner. We've got your back.

EduCode™ makes online coding and computer science education accessible for kids of all learning styles and backgrounds, on a large scale, without the need for guidance from a fully trained CS teacher. Self-directed courses empower kids to learn coding independently with the guidance of a caring facilitator.
