IN JULY 2015...
New York’s 92nd Street Y leveraged the Vidcode curriculum to introduce middle school students with a passion for technology to creative coding as part of their 2015 school year. While aimed at younger students, many adult teachers were quickly grateful for the fun lessons that they, too, are able to take part in.
“Vidcode offered something unlike we had ever had before. The students immediately loved the Vidcode modules which showed how animation works, and proved to be an amazing introduction for the kids to learn code. With Vidcode, they were hands-on and able to create things within in minutes. I thought that it could even be an amazing learning tool for adults, as well.”

CODE FOR ALL...
Tech Kids Unlimited is a not-for-profit technology-based educational organization for children ages 7 to 19 with special needs. Aside from making once-painstakingly difficult concepts simple to understand for a younger demographic, Vidcode’s abilities are further demonstrated by its usage in a special needs educational base.
“This was the very first time that we used a coding program that also integrated video and was very visual – which is an excellent element for special needs education. That truly made Vidcode stand out. It was truly unique and helped our students learn both of those skills simultaneously. The students loved it, especially the fact that they were able to use their own photos and videos as part of Vidcode’s customization in the creative process. It was a perfect fit.”
