Testimonials

Debi and her Youth Code Jam team are amazing! They provided a PD session for us that was attended by educators of all ages and positions, packed with engaging activities, accompanied by reproducible instructions, and differentiable for all ages, abilities, and interests. Engagement levels were high and the information shared was inspiring. As a result of this well-developed PD, three of our schools replicated the information to produce Coding nights on their own campuses. This PD was definitely worth every penny!

Youth Code Jam provides hands-on experiences with teachers using a variety of block-based and text-based coding languages and physical computing devices, helps them design activities around lesson plans across curriculum and helps them understand the computational thinking mindset.
