There’s an award-winning coding studio for kids that’s opening in the Galleria this summer
HOUSTON – Imagine a futuristic wonderland designed just for kids. A world full of endless possibilities and adventure, where kids can explore and experiment with advanced, cutting-edge technology. A place where today’s kids invent tomorrow.
Introducing Codeverse, the world’s first fully interactive coding studio for kids ages 6-13. Opening at the Houston Galleria this summer, Codeverse will be offering weeklong summer camps, weekday coding classes, and weekend parties.
Codeverse Houston’s ~3,000 sq ft space will boast a wide range of high-tech features contributing to a completely immersive and collaborative learning environment. The studio will be riddled with cutting-edge gadgets, including a 20ft TV wall and professional-grade lights and speakers, which can be controlled and programmed by kids using real code!
All Codeverse classes and camps are led by Guides. Our Guides are a collective of K-12 certified teachers, improv comedians, seasoned designers, engineers and game developers. This diverse mix of backgrounds, skill-sets, and experiences creates a dynamic, fun, and engaging learning environment for the children. Codeverse Guides are equipped with iPads that display real stats on how every student is progressing through the curriculum. Tracking every interactive, milestone, and mistake gives our Guides an unprecedented amount of rich data that is then used to craft a personalized approach to learning to code.
The Codeverse curriculum is designed for kids ages 6-13. It is self-guided and adaptive, meeting and challenging children at each individual skill level. As kids progress through the curriculum, they will learn all the core fundamentals universal to any programming language.
Kids receive achievement pins and digital badges for demonstrating comprehension of coding concepts, controlling physical objects (using code) within the studio, and by building unique apps and games. Through our Parent Portal, parents gain real-time visibility into their child’s progress and can view all badges earned by their child at our studio.
