At Generation Code, it is our mission to transform students into digital leaders. Using curriculum co-created by educators and coders, we teach the skills needed for kids to advance technologically, creatively, and socially. We pledge to meet each child where they are academically and socially, and empower them to shape their future through code.

critical thinking

We’ve grounded Generation Code in the power of computational thinking -- a way of approaching conflicts, designing solutions, and understanding human behavior as it relates to user design and the fundamentals of programming.
