Is Your Child Coded For Success?

Robots are replacing manufacturing workers, automation is replacing service workers, and artificial intelligence is replacing white-collar jobs.
Coding Courses For Kids Ages 6 to 16
UCode equips students ages 6 to 16 with Computational Thinking skills required to succeed in the Algorithmic Economy.
We do this by teaching students to code in Python using robots as a learning platform.

Our Curriculum
Learn coding through an Experiential Curriculum
Experiential learning removes students from a traditional classroom setting and allows them to immerse themselves in real-world problems. It is a powerful approach to teaching coding, and enhancing understanding of math and science.

What students will learn
Python logo icon
Code in Python
Students are introduced to Python. Core Computational Thinking concepts such as decomposition, pattern recognition, and abstraction are introduced as well as tools such as flowcharts.
Robot icon
Computational Thinking
Students deconstruct and analyze complex and real world problems; in the process they build a foundation of Computational Thinking skills.

Experiential Problem Solving
Students learn how to learn by engaging in real world problems and devising appropriate solutions.
Developed In Partnership with Faculty from Cornell University
The UCode Python curriculum was developed in partnership with faculty from Cornell Engineering. Now in its 5th generation, it is the leading curriculum for teaching Computational Thinking and Coding.
Cornell University
Low floor, high ceiling approach
UCode's approach is to tailor our courses to the needs of the student - what is known as "Low Floor, High Ceiling Approach".
Graph icon
Student progress is reviewed weekly against a standard learning progression.
Two arrows icon
Instructors "level" the curriculum up or down to match the progress of the student.
Lightning bolt icon
The net result = students learn much faster than in a one-size fits all classroom.
Committed to Your Student's Academic Success
By learning to code, UCode Members develop a deeper understanding of traditional school subjects such as Science and Math. UCode's Members become better test-takers, better problem solvers and better collaborators.
