Kids ages 8 through 14 will learn electrical engineering and computational thinking concepts while building an amusement park in Minecraft using redstone! Kids learn 21st century skills like logical, analytical, and “computational thinking” concepts that are rarely taught in schools while having the time of their lives! We engage kids so that they love learning, and become curious about investigating more.
Tackling Issues with Inclusion in Technology
We Can Code IT diversifies tech. We bridge the gap for those underrepresented in tech, the same groups susceptible to low to moderate incomes, through education via computer summer camps, computer workshops and adult training in software engineering and web development through coding bootcamps.
- Our Coding Bootcamp and Summer Camps are in Shaker Hts., near Cleveland, Ohio.
- We offer onsite computer science programs to Northeast Ohio schools, libraries, and groups like girl scouts.
- Remote online classes for all!
Some of our kids’ classes are free at community centers and schools. Our week long kids’ summer camps in computing are more affordable than our competitors! See our coding workshop schedule.
Adult computer training workshops and coding bootcamps are cost-effective, especially given that time is your most valuable resource. You are trained by experienced programmers and web developers!

Our innovative new financial program helps you change your life and enter IT as a web dev or programmer without steep upfront costs.
A result of feedback by students, the new program is one way for We Can Code IT to demonstrate a commitment to helping students find lucrative jobs in IT related fields. The demand for computer programmers and web developers is immense and growing. There will be 1 million IT jobs in the U.S. by 2020. Junior level developers are in demand and earn an average starting salary of $50,000 in Northeast Ohio. If a student actively seeks work and cannot find a job in IT, they are not obligated to pay We Can Code IT.
Mel McGee, We Can Code IT’s CEO, talks about the importance of advancing underrepresented groups in technology, which includes women and diverse populations, with Cleveland’s Inside Business Magazine.
