Join partners redefining the way tech literacy is delivered

Programs

Kodely helps students take their technical skills beyond what they've learned in a classroom setting and apply them to the real world, helping them develop their skills around social-emotional learning. Kodely's the first design thinking enrichment program for PreK–8th grade. Our learning model is based on principles taught at Stanford d.school, IDEO, and used at companies like Microsoft, Apple, and Google.

Our Approach

Learn real-life skills, develop empathy, and learn through projects. Start building a portfolio! At the end of the season, learners organize an Expo to showcase their creations, after which they'll receive a certificate of completion.

Approach img

Develop the creative confidence to respond to new challenges in a growth mindset environment and show students that failure is a natural part of the creative process.

Cathedral School for Boys

We are so lucky that Kodely is now a part of our school community. The Kodely leaders are professional, responsive, and invested in the well-being of our students and the effectiveness of their program. Our students adore Kodely workshops, and parents love how their learners are picking up on real-world skills and exploring key concepts such as tech literacy and design Thinking.

Kodely Parent

My daughter is just loving her Kodely class. She’s 7 years old, and she’s even able to apply her interest in piano to the projects in class. I’m also quite impressed with the organization and structure of her Kodely workshop as her Kodely Leader sends email updates weekly of what my daughter is learning. I highly recommend this course. Thanks Kodely!

This series of workshops is the first step before students can even begin to learn how to code, as it provides them with fundamentals in shaping their critical thinking skills. From an early age, getting students to exercise their muscles around design and computational thinking helps them improve their problem-solving, empathy, and innovation skills.
Students will learn to code and work with cool sensors using the micro:bit to build a new project every week! From a young age, Kodely students will learn about technology through a lens of user empathy and design. We teach our students the skills taught at top universities like Stanford d.school to think like a designer and take their technical skills beyond what they've learned in a classroom setting and apply them to the real world.
Students will solve design challenges weekly by coding and working with cool sensors to design their vision of a Smart Home! Students develop the skills they need before they go to middle school and develop the creative confidence to respond to new challenges in a growth mindset environment. At the end of the season, develop a portfolio of projects and strengthen their technical and design skills- helping them succeed as future innovators and entrepreneurs.
With this series of workshops, students learn to think about smart cities, which means cities that can be efficient and safe. Students learn to build models of smart cities, complete with futuristic cars and efficient city infrastructure. Students work with cool LEDs and sensors and get hands-on with software and hardware to prototype and solve design challenges such as water waste and reducing energy consumption.
In our world today, emerging technologies have the potential to make great contributions to our world and it's critical that all children are knowledgeable about the ethics behind emerging technologies and how they work. This workshop is a great first step for students to engage in the design, reflection, and participation in the decision-making processes for new technology and its use. We will have students understand the core concepts around emerging technology and how we can all shape and build more equitable technologies. Students leave this workshop with a new perspective of how emerging technologies work and most importantly become creators and not just consumers of technology.
Minecraft is the perfect avenue for designers and game builders to explore the basics of design, engineering & computational thinking and work on their problem-solving skills while developing these out-of-the-world virtual environments. Students learn the design process taught at Stanford d.school and walk through simulated design challenges using Minecraft.
Students unleash their creativity and learn to take advantage of their interest in playing games to learn new skills - problem-solving, storytelling, coding concepts, math, and physics skills, work in a team, and boost self-confidence!

Sri’s Story:

I grew up in a household with two software engineers and, as a result, ended up going to coding classes early on in life. Sure, I was learning the syntax for languages like Python at the elementary school level, but I would always ask myself, what’s the point of this? And trust me...as an 8-year-old, it doesn’t help to have your teacher introduce a statement like this: float(Data types example: int=9, float = 9.1) and expect you to understand what’s going on. Trying to write code without context is like try to paint a house before the walls are built.

I was missing an understanding of how what I was learning would translate into other parts of my life. Instead of looking for one particular technology or programming language kids should master, I realized that we should focus on helping students see a path forward through any situation in school, at home, and in the future workplace-that’s, how Kodely was born!

Vara’s Story:

As a parent of two curious children, I was constantly relearning how to approach problem solving to make it easy for my children to understand. Early on, I emphasized the importance of contextual thinking and communicating how you arrived at a solution.

When Sri started exploring the idea of launching Kodely, combined with my 20+ years of Software Engineering, Leadership, and Parenting experience, we decided to partner together. All our effort around reinforcing problem-solving and creative thinking has led Sri to choose a career path that she truly enjoys. I’m happy to share the learning approach that helped my kids realize their dream careers at an early age.

You can do it with Kodely.
