theCoderSchool – whose motto is “Learn to code. Change the world.” – is continuing its central Florida takeover. The concept – which aims to show the next generation of kids how inspiring and exciting technology can be – is set to open a new school in Tampa.
The new school will be owned and operated by Lesly and Michael Olavarria and is the couple’s first of three locations.
No strangers to the world of code, both Lesly and Michael saw the value in learning the skill and ultimately utilized their knowledge of code to elevate their professional careers in IT.
“We’ve experienced how powerful learning a programming language can be as it elevated us both in our careers,” Lesly said. “The initial desire to teach young children to code came when our youngest kids began to learn the basics of coding in school at age six. When we saw the potential coding had on a developing mind and learned more about theCoderSchool and its mission, we immediately jumped at the franchise opportunity.”
With summer quickly approaching, the couple is drastically reducing the price of their summer camps to help parents in their community during the pandemic.
“Giving the community access to this vital educational resource is our mission,” said Lesly. “We’ve seen first-hand the positive impact and the growing importance of early coding education, which is why we decided to operate our camps at a discounted price, in an effort to allow more students to dive into the world of code.”
