At Code2Discover, we teach kids ages 7-14 through online classes to use coding to discover their creativity, their ability, and maybe even their future. Our coding classes take students from the very beginning stages of coding to the advanced use of text-based languages. Along the way, students discover how to create video games, Minecraft mods, and more. More importantly, we help students gain the confidence that they can create amazing things with coding.
Our classes are divided into coding paths so students can learn to code doing what they are most interested in. Paths include Video Game Design, Minecraft Modding, and Game Design With Roblox. Each path starts with a beginner class that introduces students to the software and coding language used in that path.
Code2Discover was founded by owner and lead instructor, Shawn Walk. Shawn has more than 17 years of experience in education and teaching technology skills to kids. Prior to Code2Discover, he was an elementary teacher and founder of a company that used Minecraft to help students learn important 21st century skills.
Our classes are held online. Students can take classes from the comfort of their home or anywhere with internet access. We currently offer both live classes via Zoom and flex/video classes. All classes are taught by Shawn Walk, who is passionate about teaching coding and helping students discover the positive impact learning to code can have on their lives and future.
“Kye absolutely loved this class and is looking forward to the level 2. Shawn is excellent with the kids – he has them all fully engaged and is patient and kind in his interactions. Lots of fun and a great safe environment – don’t hesitate!.” –Kristen W, Parent
“My son (8 1/2) really enjoyed this class, and he learned so much! The instructor did a great job helping him think and work through problems. He feels really proud that he coded his own game!” -Heather, Parent
“My daughter really enjoyed this class. She looked forward to working on new coding exercises each day. The teacher was extremely helpful. Any time my daughter had a glitch in her coding, Shawn had a solution to help her through it. We’ve already signed up for the Level 2 course so she can learn more.” -Aimee F, Parent
“This has been a great experience for my son. Shawn is an excellent teacher who brings a real positive energy to his class, ensures all students have equal opportunity to participate and share their work, and supports and praises each child without fail. The course would benefit anyone interested in coding and game design with little or no previous experience. Students learn to create and develop their own worlds by designing the landscape and adding characters which they learn to code, ultimately leading to a game they have created which they can publish. I highly recommend this course and Shawn as a teacher.” -Melissa S, Parent
