Teaching kids to code

Part of our mission at The Iron Yard is to invest in the local tech economy. What does that mean for us? It means making sure technology education and careers in technology are supported and advanced in each city where we are located. That’s why we offer free code classes for kids – we want to impact the next generation by helping unlock a passion for technology and encouraging STEM education.

We aren’t the only ones who think it’s important to talk to kids about coding and help them gain an understanding of technology and how things work. There are many benefits to exposing kids to coding and exploring kids coding courses. Read More
