Director of Marketing

About Codeverse

Codeverse™ is the world's first fully interactive coding school and educational tech platform built for kids. Our mission? To teach a billion kids to code!

Our fully interactive studio is packed with cutting-edge technology ranging from robot arms to 3D printers, to concert lights and speakers. The studio offers after-school and weekend classes as well as weeklong Spring, Summer, and Winter camps.

We’ve built engaging curriculum and intuitive tools (including a super cool, real programming language called KidScript!) to make learning to code approachable, fun, and rewarding.

Coding is much more than computer programming or computer science. We define Coding as a broader framework for thinking, collaborating, and creating.

Class Structure

Codeverse offers daily after-school and weekend classes for kids from 1st through 8th grade. Each 75-minute class offers kids coding opportunities in KidScript using iPads and iMacs as well as interaction with studio tech and robotics. Kids learn through exploring missions (tutorials) as well as building open-ended projects and games.

During classes, you must act as their guide and motivate kids to immerse themselves in the Codeverse curriculum. Instructors have real-time visibility into the work of each student to help engage students based on their unique learning style and pace.

Camp Structure

Codeverse offers weeklong camp sessions all summer and throughout school year breaks for kids from 1st to 8th grade. Much like the classes, the camps are meant to introduce kids to the concepts of coding as well as give them an opportunity to explore the tech in the studio. Camps run from 9 AM to 3 PM with additional early drop-off and late pickup hours. Each camp session has up to 30 kids.
