All About Us

CODEMAKERS teaches introductory, intermediate, and advanced Python programming workshops to kids and teens in the Boston area. ​ ​Our coders learn the core principles of programming in a relaxed and fun environment and gradually build the technical skills needed to develop their own projects and games. Coders also work on robotics projects to develop and apply their programming skills.  Our workshops are taught by computer science majors and grad students, with teaching assistance provided by high school students.  ​

Each year, we make in-kind and monetary donations to programs for kids and teens in underserved communities. For 2020, our designated charities are The Teen Center at St. Peter in Dorchester and the Science Club for Girls in Cambridge.
