Codeverse is Coming to Naperville This Fall

Codeverse first opened last summer in Lincoln Park and is now coming to Naperville! This fully interactive coding studio for 6-13 year olds was founded on the mission to teach a billion kids to code. The focus at Codeverse is to enable kids to understand concepts through real world components and build usable and shareable products including their own games and apps, all in a fun, creative, and collaborative environment. They offer after-school, evening and weekend classes, as well as weeklong camps during Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. The Naperville studio is opening this October and will be located at 55 S. Main Street, Naperville, IL 60540.

Why Coding is Important

Coding teaches skills outside of just programming, such as critical thinking, collaboration and teamwork, building confidence, creativity, and problem solving. Considering how much technology is around us daily, it’s important for kids to understand how technology works whether they end up becoming engineers or not. Also, every industry has already been disrupted by technology, and the rate of change from here is exponential. There will most likely be jobs that don’t even exist yet that will require tech skills.

The Codeverse Studio

In the studio space, kids use iPads to learn to code and also to control and program physical objects within the space, including a 20 ft tv wall, 3D printers, laser cutters, robotic arms, concert-hall lights and speakers. The instructors, who are certified K-12 teachers, use iPads to be able to monitor what the kids are building using KidScript but also see how the kids are interacting with the physical space and the objects within the physical space.

KidScript: Kids Coding Language

Codeverse developed a coding language for kids called KidScript with the specific goal of being the very best introduction to coding for kids. Through KidScript, kids learn all the core coding principles such as methods, loops, variables, and more to pique their interest and get them excited about programming! The proprietary language allows direct control over robots, light, sound and other hardware within the interactive studio, and has enabled kids as young as 6 to build their own apps and games. And most importantly, everything they learn easily translates into popular adult programming languages like Ruby, Javascript, Python, and more.

Membership-based Classes

All after-school, evening, and weekend classes are 75-minutes long. Parents sign up for a monthly membership, which gets children re-occurring access into the studio and all of its technology, once a week, every week. Join the Naperville waiting list to receive updates about official opening!
