Students were engaged in the program and were excited to work on their missions. CoderZ has helped my female students become more confident in math and given them a way to engage in learning coding and math in a fun way. "

Lydia Hernandez
Coordinator

This was the first time I had students engaged with CoderZ and they enjoyed it! I appreciate that I could play along with them and learn things I didn't know previously too. "

Leah Aiwohi
Teacher

I am always looking for opportunities for our school computer lab, so I can continue teaching the fundamentals of computer science and robotics for all our students. I believe that every student must have the opportunity to be exposed and spark their early interest in technology regardless of their background, ethnicity, gender. "

Javier Aguilar
Teacher Coach

It allowed me to really challenge and push my robotics students at their own pace to learn how to code. I challenged them all to finish 101 by the end of the year and most students did!!! "

Spencer Wright
Teacher

We used CoderZ to help us meet CTE Robotics I TEKS for our 8th grade Robotics I class. This was the first year we offered a Robotics I class for 8th graders, and because I had used CoderZ in the past, I knew that it would help our students in many ways. Not only did it help us to hit the TEKS, it also helped students with their problem solving skills, "

Hunter McConnell
Coach

CoderZ is a fun way to introduce computer science to students. The drag-and-drop format with block coding makes it a super easy way for students to create simple programs. And the immediate feedback they receive for their program (does the robot do what you expect it to?) is an awesome way for students to see how programs actually drive innovation! "

Ami Steelman
Director Teacher Coordinator

My students thoroughly enjoy the LEGO Spike Prime CoderZ experience. It offers a unique, creative, and challenging set of missions and assessments that hold the students attention. CoderZ has helped my students develop problem solving skills along with peer collaboration. "

Matt Bouchard
Teacher

CoderZ was easy to implement into my STEM classroom. Students were easily directed by prompts on what to do and how to meet success criteria. CoderZ has become a staple in my STEM classes. Students are excited to sign on and love that coding feels like playing a video game. Student interest in coding and STEM have skyrocketed since I implemented CoderZ into our program. "
