Ages for which our activities are most appropriate: 
Kids who love technology will love Coder Kids. Students learn the fundamentals of computer programming in a fun, project-based setting. Our youngest coders gain experience in sequencing and debugging by coding robots, playing games, and using Scratch Jr. Older elementary students build games, animations, and art in Scratch: a programming platform developed by MIT for young learners. After kids learn the basics, they can use more complex game engines and programming languages. Projects range from simple to complex and allow students to turn their awesome dreams into reality!


We believe all kids should have the opportunity to learn coding, engaging their minds in critical thinking and preparing them for a world that is increasingly tech-driven. Coder Kids partners with schools to provide kids an avenue to explore coding in a fun but practical way.


In our after-school classes and camps, students create interactive games and animations starting with basic languages like ScratchJr or Scratch, then we progress into more advanced languages and concepts such as modding Minecraft with Java, Arduino boards, Python programming, Game Maker Studio, web development, and app development. 


We are based out of Houston, Texas, with additional locations in Dallas, and San Antonio.

Coder Kids offers a variety of classes in metro areas throughout Texas, teaching kids of all ages to make games and code using Scratch, Python, Javascript, Minecraft modding in Java, Arduino, and more.
