About UCode

We’ve been successfully teaching 8-to-18-year-old kids how to write software at our in-person centers for over 6 years. UCode transforms kids into rockstars by fueling them with the superpower of being able to dream up an idea and make it come to life as an app, website, game, or even a gadget. In an engaging project-based learning environment, students learn an algebraic style of programming to create bug-free and high-performance code. We start with the fundamentals and end with mathematical and computational thinking skills beyond most professional software developers.

We’ve transformed thousands of kids’ educations and are poised to have a true impact on significantly more. Students have gone on to work at companies like Google and have written code used by billions of people. We are backed by Bloomberg Beta, Idealab, and High Line Ventures, among others -- and we have a plan to expand dramatically over the coming years.
