You can teach computer science, yes you!

Mr. Yust did not think he could teach computer science. He worried that his background in social studies, math, and science would not translate to a third grade coding class. Using the comprehensive Codelicious Curriculum, however, Mr. Yust built confidence with the subject matter and saw incredible growth in his students.

Engaging students of all learning styles

MSD Pike Township wanted a way to bring computer science to their middle school students. They needed curriculum that appealed to beginners and could be taught without a dedicated computer science staff.

Their ESL teacher, Mr. Reyes, used the Codelicious Curriculum to:

  • Enable students to average an 84% on their post assessment

  • Teach a computer science course without a dedicated computer science teacher

  • Create excitement in his classroom, even among students who typically struggle in school
