We recognize learning to code is new to most of our student population and it's not for everyone. Our Jumpstart classes provide a nice way for your aspiring innovator to kick the coding tires and see if they like it. If Jumpstart classes are a hit, consider signing up for a seasonal class!

About Us

We love coding! We are an independent company founded by a Woolwich NJ Computer Science Professional with a passion to teach children how to code. We create our own courses with a goal of providing a glimpse into the computing field. Not only do we teach coding, we demonstrate “real world” applications of technology and do so in an environment that is ripe with learning opportunity and fun. Our objective is simple - we want to show the hidden educational value of making technology (read more).
