Learning follows excitement. So the real question we should be asking is, "How do we excite the next generation about code?" And that’s where the idea for Code Championship comes from.

- Luke, Co-Founder, Code Championship

Who is Code Championship?

We are a group of highly energetic teachers and software developers who believe that all students should learn a little bit about code. Even if they're not professional software developers, - and we don't believe everyone has to be - code is going to be such an important part of their lives, that they should know at least a little bit about it.

If we've learned anything over the past six years of teaching kids to code, it is that Learning follows Excitement.

Competitive computer coding. We wanted to bring a sports-like mentality to code, to make coding more like a sport, and we did it by making code competitive. We created games that make practicing worth it.

Ready to excite the next generation?
