CoderZ launches CoderZ at Home

CoderZ Technologies LTD announced the launch of CoderZ at Home, a new version of their award-winning code-learning platform that’s designed for homeschoolers and kids looking to learn code outside of a classroom environment. CoderZ at Home takes an integrative approach to code literacy — combining STEM, computer science, and critical life skills to prepare kids for the changing demands of a digital future. The flexible new interface lets children self-lead through the learning material without any need for parental guidance.

By using bite-sized missions designed to feel like a game and blending maximum engagement with a sense of accomplishment, the platform enables learners to gain problem-solving skills quickly and measurably. “We’ve used our combined experience as educators, programmers, engineers, and gamers to create a learning environment that makes coding feel like a game for kids, while empowering them to develop problem-solving, critical thinking and grit skills,” Duchin continued. “Following months of research that includes insights from a pilot study with our target audience, we’re confident that CoderZ at Home delivers an engaging STEM learning experience that will spark kids’ passion for STEM and coding.”

“Homeschooling and self-paced learning is on the rise all over the world. But learning to code in a home environment presents a unique set of challenges and opportunities,” said Sharon Duchin, Chief Marketing Officer at CoderZ. “In addition, preparing today’s kids for tomorrow’s careers is more challenging than ever with the rapid-fire development in technology. No one is entirely sure what jobs or obstacles 2050 will bring, but one thing is for certain: the role of STEM and computer science will be pivotal.”

Pilot participants included dozens of homeschoolers from the U.S. and Canada. Here’s what parents shared:

  • “We have really enjoyed coding in which my son had no experience at all. He is super independent.”
  • “My kids learned to follow directions and think outside of the box.”
  • “My son chooses missions, makes mistakes, assesses his abilities, and corrects his strategy, gaining life skills as well.”
  • “Thank you for developing something that leads kids to coding with smiles on their faces.”
  • “CoderZ gets kids in, and they really like it. They engage in it and gain a lot of confidence.”
