Hi, we're Wanjun, Neeraj and Amanda. Thank you for visiting our Patreon!

We are also Code Park Houston, a small non-profit in Houston Texas.

Girls and minorities are underserved and underrepresented in science and technology. We aim to close the resource gap by committing to provide high-quality coding and technology workshops to students in their own communities.



  • Focus on active Project Based Learning.
  • Provide learners with purpose, context, and motivation.
  • Tap into real world career connections through key partnerships.
  • Are sensitive to students’ cultural values.



We equip learners with project-based maker skills such as 3D-Printing in addition to programming knowledge. In the process, students take ownership of their deep learning.


Example: A student’s design journal in Code Park’s Invent to Learn Program at Fab Lab Houston. She is prototyping a design by describing the behavior of her circuit board as well as making a drawing of a 3D printed design. July 2018. Courtesy of Wanjun Zhang.


We empower students to express themselves in music, art and writing enabled by programming skills and technology.


Example: A learner explores how a computer sees and stores color as data in Code Park’s ASCII Art Summer Reading Program at Montrose Freeman Library. June 2018. Courtesy of Wanjun Zhang.


We close the gap in technology education for emerging job markets such as Data Science and Virtual Reality. In this innovation-driven program, we work with students and educators alike as we develop and evaluate curriculum.

Example: In Code Park’s Create Your Own Virtual Reality workshop at KIPP Academy, a student learns how to code his own VR environment with HTML, CSS and Javascript. April 2018. Courtesy of Wanjun Zhang.


We multiply our impact by training technology educators with professional development workshops to deliver our innovative programs. We also engage technologists as volunteers in our programs to train them to become community mentors on their own or to teach through our programs. We aim to create connections between technologists and teachers to provide support to teachers as they begin to teach computer science and other STEAM-based subjects.


Example: In Code Park’s Train the Trainers session, Houston Public Library’s Techlink staff learn how to teach some of our workshops - Paper Circuits, Squishy Circuits, ASCII Art and Creative Coding. April 2018. Courtesy of Wanjun Zhang.

Your support directly funds our programs. Our students gain hands-on coding skills and 21st century workforce skills such as collaboration, teamwork, critical thinking, and problem-solving.

Goals
$125 of $500 per month
The Ripple Effect, Livestreamed!

When we reach this goal, we will conduct a free professional development workshop for Ed Tech teachers in one of these areas:

  • Physical Computing with Raspberry Pi
  • Internet of Things
  • Wearable Technology
  • Intro to R Programming + Data Science
  • Intro to 3D Printing and 3D Design
  • Coding and the Visual Arts

And livestream the workshop.
