1. What is Codeverse? Codeverse is the world’s first fully interactive coding studio and educational technology platform for kids aged 6-13. Our mission is to teach a billion kids to code!
2. What problem is Codeverse solving? We believe that every kid should be set up for success as early as possible. We do this by equipping them with the right skills they need to thrive in their ever-changing, technologically-advanced world.
3. What’s the biggest short and long term challenge you face as a business and why? Short term, we’re growing very quickly – opening two new locations this summer and hiring 60 people. We’re looking to fill these roles. Long term, same as everyone! Hiring the very best people, and finding enough hours in the day
4. What’s the most substantial change in the educational needs of today’s child as opposed to when we were children? Simply put, technology has advanced and is quickly disrupting every single industry. There will be jobs (that don’t even exist yet!) that will require certain technical skills. If kids are learning Mathematics and English in schools today, they should definitely be learning the crucial skill of coding.
5. Why should we bring our kids to Codeverse? Codeverse is the classroom of the future. We teach kids as young as 6 how to design and develop apps and video games in a beautiful, fun, social setting. The studio itself is interactive, meaning that all of the cutting-edge technology (concert hall lights, speakers, TV’s, and robotic arms) within the facility can be programmed by the students.
Beyond technical skills, Codeverse teaches kids crucial life skills such as confidence, creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration.
