CEO and Code Wiz Franchise Founder, Ruth Agbaji, once said, I just know that the next Steve Jobs will come from Code Wiz. Ever since that day we use this as our goal. By using this as our foundation, we create a community where every child has the tools and support to unleash their inner genius every day.
HOW DO CODE WIZ CLASSES WORK?
At Code Wiz, the coding and robotics classes are designed to be customizable and flexible to the child's abilities and interests. We do this by offering a wide variety of cutting-edge classes that are challenging, but not too challenging that they become discouraging.
Each child has access to their own online dashboard to track and work on their projects, attend classes with our engaging coaches, and talk to their friends. The classes are loosely separated into 7-9-year-olds, 10-12 years olds, and 13+ with many flexible options for kids who need more or less challenging classes at different ages.
CLASS OPTIONS AVAILABLE
- Coding and Robotic Classes
- School Vacation and Summer Camps
- Advanced Coding Classes
- Fun Events â€“ Family nights, parent's night out, date night, etc.
WHY CODING FOR KIDS?
Computers and software are changing the way we interact, work, create, do business, and problem-solving. But even with computers and technology fundamentally shaping our world, only 47% of American High Schools teach computer science.
Overwhelmingly, both students and parents are seeking out options for computer science education. A recent Access Report says that 90% of parents want their child to study computer science, and polled students show that children list computer science and performing arts as the classes they most enjoy.
STEM and computer science classes are often considered to be specialized because people assume that the skills children learn in these classes are only useful for careers in engineering or programming. But coding has proven to be a FOUNDATIONAL skill, not a vocational one. Learning to code improves problem-solving, creativity, and logic: Skills valuable in all areas of life and in all kinds of professions.
On top of being sought after by parents, fun for kids, and foundational for education, learning to code can open up future job opportunities for children. Computing jobs are the #1 source of new wages in the United States. And not just in the tech industry!
This growing demand for computer science education and the opportunities that come with it does not correlate with the only 47% of high schools that offer computer science education. Code Wiz is filling the gap with coding classes for kids ages 7-17 who are seeking a fun and important skill.
