Reviews

"I think the students enjoyed doing something hands on that allowed them to show their creativity."

"The code Car is amazing! ...It's easy enough for kids to learn the general foundation of coding, and challenging enough for kids that are ready for the next level, and be creative. I highly recommend this."
