Enabling schools to teach programming
Programming is a 21th century skill
But there's no one to teach it
Professional programmers want to give back, but not on a teachers salary along with all the stress and work it takes to create a decent course. Schools already have teachers however. So we've made a platform that enables these teachers to start their own programming class with least effort possible.
Built for schools
Any teacher can pick up
Our platform is specially designed so any teacher can teach programming to students. Coding skills are beneficial, but since we're teaching beginner level, we can train your teacher to aquire the skills needed.
Our professional software developers are on standby so your teacher is never alone in the classroom. More complicated questions can be answered and student problems fixed by a remote programmer. Live during your lesson.
Build real world apps
Our goal is for the students to get a taste of how fun programming can be. So we've developed a curriculum from familiar apps like chat and multiplayer games. They will build these and learn a real programming language without having to sit through lectures!
"Best thing in school!"

How does it work?
1. Attend demo
Open to anyone interested. Just come to check out what the buzz is about. How does the platform work? How does the learning happen? Ask questions.
2. Teacher attends training
Unless you're choosing the "Platform Only" option, the teacher will need to learn the materials and then teach to the students. It's "no strings attached", attending doesn't imply buying.
3. Conduct trial lesson
What better way to figure out how this works and if the students are actualy interested, but to have a trial run. Some teachers do it during their normal class, sometimes they prefer to organize an after school class across multiple grades to find interested parties.
Up until now everything has been for free. To conduct an actual lesson however we'll need to cover the expenses.
5. Actual lessons
This is what everyone's been waiting for. Teaching programming in possibly the best way possible - through real projects. Regardless of the package you've chosen we'll always be available for problem solving and advice.
6. Rinse and repeat
If the course was successful, we'd love to talk about new courses to offer and the next pupils to teach. If it didn't go as planned we can discuss a refund. Either way we're awaiting your feedback and thoughts and aim to make the whole experience better every time.
