I feel it was super cool and magical. I didn't learn it realquick because certain mistakes I would make, but it taught me focus. I love the creative part of coding. It makes me think outside the box. I would love to venture into the computer science world and see what more it has to offer.

The learners are now choosing CAT [ IT-related] subjects and this has brought so much joy to the school. The learners are so eager to learn and their CAT [IT-related] marks are increasing.

CodeJIKA facilitation is more learner-centered and very skills-based, as opposed to a traditional approach. I have seen some learners who are not very gifted academically, doing computer programs and web pages.

...it's a wonderful teaching method for us teens who are always looking for a challenge. I learned surprisingly fast. The very first two projects I completed in a week, and project 3 I completed in 3:25 hours. I'm most definitely looking forward to working with many more projects, can't wait!!!
