With over 20 years in public education and private entrepreneurship, AnnMarie Laramee and Denise Detamore designed
Kids 4 Coding to bridge the gap between what kids learn in traditional academic classes and what they need to succeed in our technology-based society. Together they established partnerships with tech experts and educators to develop interactive, relevant curricula to teach STEM through FUN, creative, confidence-building activities. Now in its seventh year of operation, Kids 4 Coding continues to develop new programs and serve new communities each summer. See our partners.
What We Do
Regardless of the path today’s students choose to pursue – from medicine to music – programming/coding will be essential, and due to funding gaps, most schools do not have the resources to cover tech education in an impactful way.
At Kids 4 Coding, we’re filling those gaps and preparing future engineers, programmers and entrepreneurs through FUN, confidence-building curricula - designed by tech experts & educators - that capture kids' imaginations and motivate them to succeed.
Depending on location, class size ranges from 8-16 students.
Student/Teacher ratio is 8:1.
All instructors are computer science and engineering
majors, recruited from top colleges and universities
like Georgia Tech, UGA, Tufts, BU, Harvard & MIT.
