There are many benefits for students diving into the STEM culture. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and getting kids interested at early ages can open up a whole new world of ideas and possibilities.

With that energy in mind, a new “school” has just opened its doors to help shape the minds of future coders.

“theCoderSchool” hosted its grand opening over the weekend in Westerville. The school is geared toward kids ages 7 to 18 who are interested in learning how to do things like program games and build websites.

“Anyone that’s looking for a future in STEM in career or school, they really should learn in some fashion, whether it’s to make a robot, make a ball bounce across the screen or build the next Mars rover, who knows,” said “theCoderSchool” General Manager Kevin Choo.

Coding takes practice, and ‘theCoderSchool” believes getting kids to code consistently throughout the year is the only way they’ll really learn to code! The have programs are for students at all skill levels and they work to progress through a broad array of languages from Scratch to Python, Javascript, Java and much more.

After looking for more information on this school, it is set up with weekly after-school programs, that run throughout the year. Pricing is monthly and varies depending on the program. They also offer summer camp options.
