CoderZ Launches At Home Program
CoderZ has launched a new version of its computer science learning program: CoderZ at Home. The new release is targeted to those working outside the classroom, including students engaged in remote learning and students who are homeschooled.
The new tool offers a scaffolded curriculum designed to let students set the pace of their own learning without adult guidance. The program takes a gaming approach and uses an immersive virtual learning environment, offering "bite-sized" missions to help students improve their problem-solving skills.
“We’ve used our combined experience as educators, programmers, engineers, and gamers to create a learning environment that makes coding feel like a game for kids, while empowering them to develop problem-solving, critical thinking and grit skills,” said Sharon Duchin, chief marketing officer at CoderZ, in a prepared statement. “Following months of research that includes insights from a pilot study with our target audience, we’re confident that CoderZ at Home delivers an engaging STEM learning experience that will spark kids’ passion for STEM and coding.”
The program was piloted in the United States and Canada.
CoderZ at Home starts at $7.49 per month for a subscription. Further details can be found at gocoderz.com.
