Coding For Kids Made Fun!
Learn how to code the fun way by creating games – no experience needed.
Plant the roots for their future.
With our in-person coding clubs and online coding software, kids get training to build a foundation for a future in software development, while having a ton of fun doing it!
Take a peek at some of what we teach…
Students will be taught how to create web pages. You will learn HTML for web page layout and how to style those pages using CSS. Students will have lots of creative freedom on colors, fonts and images!
In our in-person robotics workshops you will learn how to build & program sensor powered robots with the Arduino. Create line following bots to more advanced sumo bots & battle bots that you can compete with.
Don’t just play games, create them! Turn your kids love of gaming into a valuable skill.
Create Your First Web Page With HTML
Learn how to create a basic HTML web pages. Learn how to title your page and what that means, learn how to add viewable text, learn how to create buttons, how to add images, how to create links and how to create audio sound files.
Style Your Web Page With CSS
Learn how to style your web page with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). Set background colors, text size, text color, font styles and more. Also learn how to create custom classes and ids to control the styling of individual elements.
Web Page Special Effects
Roll Dice Game
Learn how to write a function and run the function when a button is clicked. Use conditional logic to set certain actions to happen only if doubles are rolled. Learn how to play a sound when doubled are rolled and how to set a background image when doubles are rolled.
Slot Machine Game
Program a Slot Machine game. Leverage loops to count through and add to variables in order to save from manually writing a lot of redundant code. Leverage logical operators to achieve results. Introduction to the Chrome webkit rendering engine for animating the rolling of your dice with CSS.
Chrome Developer Tools
Interactive Online Storybook
Catch The Creeper Game
Learn how to place characters on the canvas, program movement for those characters and accumulate points when your good character catches the creeper. You will be using conditional logic, loops, arrays and objects. You will also create a scoreboard that will keep score for your different actions.
2D Breakout Game
Leverage HTML canvas to draw the game bricks, balls and bats. Then switch these out with image graphics to make it look nicer. Program mouse movements, calculate and display a score and program lose game logic. This is a longer lesson to challenge your skills with what you already learned along with introducing new concepts.
Arduino Circuit Board Programming
Our introduction to the Arduino will give students a basic understanding on how to program electronics opening them up to all kinds of possibilities. You will learn how to turn on and off LEDs with code, how to initiate actions such as turning on a motor when a button is pushed and how to program sensors. This lesson will open up students to a whole new world.
We currently run in-person coding clubs in schools and for after school programs. If you are a school interested in running a club, please contact us below.
We also have an online self-paced platform for learners who are self-directed and would like to learn on their own time. Contact us below if you would like to be granted an account to our online platform.
Hi, My name is Misty Lackie and I am one of the creators of CodeDigs. I have been developing software for over 15 years and love helping kids discover an early interest in technology.
I have a 15-year-old son Nathan who early on became obsessed with technology and computers. At the age of 8, he starting hacking away at Minecraft and programming his own mods. At the age of 11, he started tinkering with the Raspberry Pi and created a solar powered plant watering system for his 6th grade science project. His most recent endeavor is programming mini Geometry assignments based on his Matheia lessons.
Coming from a longstanding background in software development and upon seeing the creativity that technology gives him, I wanted to find a way to turn his obsession into a learning opportunity, and thus the idea for codedigs coding courses for kids was born.
- Either a Mac, Windows Laptop, Desktop PC or Chromebook with solid Internet connection.
- Internet browser installed such as Chrome
- Should be comfortable typing.
- Best for ages 12 to 16 but can be used by younger students depending on typing skills.
Sign up and join the fun!
You can join the fun multiple ways. Use our online platform and go through tutorials at your own pace or join us in one of our in-person workshops. We also provide training to others who want to use the CodeDigs software to run their own workshops.

Parents Love Our Courses!
My son is bummed tomorrow is the last day! He has learned so much and wants more.
We tried the Hour of Code program with no luck but my daughter absolutely loves this class. She’s learning so much and can’t stop talking about it.
My son is so stoked to go to this class! He wishes it was “everyday”!
