What Our Parents Say

A great program

UCode runs a great program. Since the next generation loves technology why not encourage them to learn how to code. My daughter loves going to Ucode each week, she gets so excited to share what she learns and can't wait to learn advanced coding. The staff is always friendly and is great at explaining current projects my child is working on.

Loves UCode!

My son loves UCode! I did not think he would have the patience for programming but he seems to really enjoy it.


An amazing experience with UCode

We have had such an amazing experience with UCode so far. It is incredible to see the boost in confidence that the kids have when they are successful with their coding skills. It is always a proud moment for them when they get to show off their projects. Thank you to Frank and the rest of the amazing staff at UCode for doing such a great job with our kids.
