Codesters

Codesters is on a mission to create a world where every kids learns to code in school. We believe this is best accomplished by providing existing teachers with the tools they need to start teaching coding in their classrooms: an online coding platform with a learning management system and built-out coding lessons. We also provide professional development and support for teachers new to teaching coding. Codesters is an online platform and coding curriculum that enables teachers to teach text-based programming (Python) to students in grades 5 to 9. Our unique coding platform lowers the initial barrier to coding by allowing students to drag snippets of text-based code into their coding editor. We also extended Python to allow students to immediately include graphics, animation, and interactivity so so they can create engaging projects. Our pre-built curriculum guides students through project-based lessons that highlight specific coding skills. We also provide professional development for teachers to help them get started with teaching coding. Costs per student with LMS and expanded software use.
