Our founders, a computer engineer turned entrepreneur (MBA from NYU Stern) and a professor of computer science at Virginia Tech are a married couple who have been involved with education and computer science for over two decades.
Our journey started in Blacksburg VA, the home of the Hokies where we have led workshops and programs for high school kids interested in computers. Being technologists and early adopters of several technologies, we were not happy with the choices that were available for our boys.
Growing up, we learned to program the Sinclair® ZX Spectrum and had a lot of fun and excitement in being able to create programs. There are memories of creating math puzzles for a little brother using the Spectrum. We wanted something similar for our boys.
Introducing Scratch® Jr to our 4 year old was a lot of fun and we soon conducted workshops for groups of kids and thus Kodeclik was born.
We have conducted coding camps in Virginia since 2014 and are very excited to launch our courses online in 2018.
