TESTIMONIALS

"The class was a lot of fun! It taught me all the basics of coding, and I feel like I am ready to learn another coding language. At first, I was nervous about the class, but I enjoyed it a lot and found myself coding in my free time!"

This has been a wonderful coding class. I have learned so much these past 4 weeks and the environment has been warm and inviting. This class is the perfect mix of fun games and coding projects! I would definitely recommend this Scratch class to kids who are just getting introduced to coding.
