NYC workshops allow students to learn Scratch, Robotics, and Web Development at their own pace

Generation Code's NYC project-based workshops provide students with space to create personalized projects in Scratch, Robotics, and Web Development, regardless of skill level.

Our workshops are led by our experienced instructors, and feature beginner, intermediate, and advanced tracks. Each workshop consists of a brief lesson in which learners are exposed to content - students then work to incorporate that content into a project of their choice. Students are left with a project that reflects their own interests and that they can be proud to share. These projects can serve as portfolio pieces for students interested in a career as a dev, as a project to share with friends, or anything in between!

Workshops are designed so that students can drop in at anytime, so there is no need to worry about missing a week.

  • hands-on, project-based curriculum

collaborative

Kids are great teachers. Our students learn from each other while developing their social and team-building skills. Students collaborate on both short-term and long-term projects, as well as engage in paired-programming and mini-activities during each lesson.

creative

Coding is a form of expression. It’s creative and strategic, and our workshops offer students the benefits of choosing their own coding adventure in a structured, effective environment. The more students explore, the more self-confidence they gain along with the ability to innovate and lead.
