We’re designing educational coding tools for kids who have been left out of learning—especially those with complex needs.

We’re also sharing free creative activities, lessons, and projects that help kids learn, develop social and communication skills, and express themselves with code.

More Than Just Learning to Code

Students with disabilities often depend on digital technology and adapted instruction to participate in class, communicate with family, and share with their friends. Our goal is to empower all learners to be creators of their digital worlds, to express themselves using code and art, and to apply these skills to other areas of learning and daily life. Not just learning to code, but coding to learn and create.

Co-Designing With You

We are an open community of designers, researchers, programmers, and accessibility advocates. We would love to co-design with you. Some ways you can help:

  • Take part in our co-design activities and brainstorming sessions
  • Try out our coding tools and resources and share your feedback
  • Share your educational resources, lesson plans, or inclusive coding activities
  • Contribute to the open source design and development of our coding tools
  • Tell us about the challenges and opportunities of accessible coding

Work in Progress

We have been working with students at summer coding camps over the past month and writing about our co-designing experience.

We are busy exploring inclusive coding ideas. Please play with our prototype to get an idea of the direction we're taking. We also created a video that documents some of our thinking.

Our project launch event was held at OCADU where funding was announced for several accessibility initiatives, including support for the Coding to Learn and Create project.
