    Meet the Founder

    “I built KidzIdeaz, a web application for kids to capture, share, build and even sell their ideas. I had a ton of fun building the app and wanted other kids to have the same experience and so KidzIdeazTECH was born.

    KidzIdeazTECH is a movement for kids that is run by kids. It provides kids with a fast, fun, and easy way to learn to code and build cool apps. It's completely free! All you need is a laptop and access to the internet.

    My code base is available to all kids so that they can enhance KidzIdeaz or use it to build their own apps.“

    Nathaniel, 12 years old

Our Mission

Making computer science cool

Dean

Fast

Learn by doing

Unlike summer coding classes or coding-using-blocks, our new approach enables you to learn professional coding at home. Start writing code immediately and quickly contribute to live applications. Get access to information and mentors to help you along the way.

Dean

Fun

Code like you are texting

Have fun building apps with other kids located anywhere on the planet. Make changes to your code and everyone instantly sees your changes appear on their screen. Save your code and your application immediately gets rebuilt and available for use.

Dean

Easy

Code anywhere, anytime

All you need is a computer (even a Chromebook will do) and internet access in order to begin coding. Setting up your free cloud server literally takes one click. Work on your code from any computer and from anywhere - home, school, cafe or the beach.

"Learning is collaborative and continuous"
LEARN the 'how'
At KidzIdeazTECH, learning is fun. Instead of long classes and meaningless exercises, you work on a set of challenges to modify or improve KidzIdeaz, a live website being used by thousands of kids across the globe. Each challenge has links to articles and information sites to make learning quick and easy. And if you still need help just reach out to other kids and mentors to get quick answers. Whether it is setting a background color or creating a phone app, you can quickly find the information you need.
CODE what you learn
Use the cool interactive tools we provide to modify the application and see your results immediately. You can fix actual bugs, create new features or even build your own product. Instead of working alone you can work interactively with your friends or kids located anywhere across the globe.
SHARE your experience
Sharing is how we learn and so you will be expected to mentor other kids, update the knowledge base with new information or share your experiences and ideas via a blog.
