Code for fun exposes students from Kindergarten to High-School to coding in an interactive way. We offer after school programs, camps, in school instruction and teachers training, throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. As a leader in computer science education for young learners, our programs are designed for all students, bridging gender and racial gaps, and encouraging them to consider academic and career paths in the engineering field.
CS Continuous learning is a program started by Code for fun to bring 10 hours of computer science in the classroom in grades K to 8 during a school year. We assemble, create, reuse curriculum to provide educators with a content they can use and adjust based on the audience. The goal is to integrate computer science into other subjects studied in class. Computer Science then becomes an accessory to learn or show your work and not a stand alone discipline.
We also provide training and support to encourage teachers to start teaching computer science during the school.
