About CodeLinkd

*

We, at CodeLinkd, strongly believe that coding can be used for more than just creating applications. We are extremely passionate about bringing computer science to kids from a very early age, tapping into their endless creativity and helping them create beautiful and responsible code. With exposure to smartphones from their toddler years, kids have a natural interest in computers. To have the ability to harvest that interest and transform it into learning is a huge opportunity.

Learning to code should be compared to learning a new language or a musical instrument. It helps increase perseverance, improves memory, teaches patience, and nurtures creativity. It helps enhance their capacity to reason, solve problems thoughtfully and make effective decisions from a very early age. Coding helps sharpen the analytical and cognitive skills of kids. We strongly believe that we can help discover that hidden potential within kids and teach them how to approach real-world scenarios - all by teaching them how to code.

Coding is a basic life skill. We want these kids to explore careers in different fields where their hearts lie, be it medicine, automotive manufacturing, finance or arts and design - and be well-equipped to do so.

At CodeLinkd, we offer a variety of courses for kids of ages five and up. Our courses have a mix of coding, robotics, circuits, unplugged exercises, and other STEAM concepts.
