During the school year, students in CodeMasters meet at least three afternoons each week to begin to invent and create through computer programming. They work with committed certified teachers and FEF's computer science Ph.D. Fellows to understand the basics of coding and then choose to learn either to program animations or games or to build web pages and mobile apps using proven, Khan Academy, MIT, and other curricula.

Through this hands on exposure to STEM through coding, students not only learn mathematical and computational concepts, but also gain insight into the inner workings of technology and learn strategies for thinking critically, solving problems, designing projects, and communicating ideas, a group of skills useful for everyone. In addition to coding, students in CodeMasters meet with tutors as needed; review life skills; prepare for high school and college or advanced training; and explore careers. Elementary school students also focusing only strengthening their literacy skills, learning about healthy eating and nutrition, and engaging in physical activity.

CodeMasters is FREE, and daily snacks are provided at no charge at most locations.
