What people are saying

"Newton Library CodeCampKidz Fills Up in No Time. Unfortunately the registration list, which opened three days ago, is already filled, as is the waiting list."
~ NewtonSTEM (click for article)

"I found CampCodeKidz to be an ideal way to learn to code. The program is intuitive and well designed."
~ Maureen Devlin, edM, NBPTC (click for article)

"The first thing that struck me about CodeCampKidz was the simplicity of the screen design. It was very intuitive and only presented the options required to complete the immediate task. Additionally, the site uses audio instructions for each step of the project, something that you don't see in free coding sites like CodeAcademy. These are great for younger students, or students who prefer audio over text-based instruction."
~ Michael Karlin, The Ed Tech Round Up (click for article)
