Rex Academy, the reputed academy that’s known for providing schools and organizations the best-in-class cutting-edge technology curriculum, has announced that it is offering free coding content for kids this summer. The Academy mainly licenses its standards aligned curriculum to K-12 schools, they also offer online week long summer camps, school year online weekly hour long classes for individual kids and at partnered schools in the USA, and IT job training skills for adults. The initiative has come at the right time as kids and adults are stuck at home due to the Covid19 pandemic and have free time but nothing concrete to do.
“We are delighted to announce that our online coding classes (private, group, self-paced) for kids this summer have a great start” says the spokesperson for Rex Academy. “We are committed to bringing high-quality, online, self-directed computer science curriculum to all K-12 students. Rex online coding classes during this summer will help students take a step ahead of their peers towards their technology skills.”
Rex Academy is offering a 10 week, 45 minutes of free daily coding content this summer. If you are a parent or represent a non-profit organization interested in this free daily coding content, please sign up here:
Rex Academy was founded in 2014 by Sandhya Padala, a Master’s Degree holder in Computer Science and an IT Professional with over 15 years of experience. She started the Academy after quitting her job from Harley Davidson as a Technology Design Director.
The Academy started with a few classes and camps but started building a curriculum gradually and partnered with local schools and organizations. In 2019 Rex Academy started developing its own coding learning portal which is designed to be both fun and educational.
Rex Academy offers the best online coding classes for kids age seven and above. Over 10,000 students have enrolled in their programs. It has successfully completed over 200 Summer Camps. More than 15 organizations are partnered with Rex.
CEO of Rex, Sandy believes that to succeed in the increasingly technology-driven world, every student must learn how computers think. Rex Academy’s mission is to provide high-quality, online, self-directed computer science curriculum to all K-12 students by licensing curriculum directly to schools.
Here’s what Curt Hazelbaker President/CEO, YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas had to say about this initiative:
“I was struck by the comment made by Sandy, that coding is the reading and writing for the future generation. That really resonates when you realize how basic reading and writing is and what that means for coding going forward.”
Programming is sheer magic and a universal language”, says Rex Academy CEO Sandy Padala. “Kids can develop a passion for it quickly. It becomes an outlet for their creativity and helps hone problem-solving skills. In many ways, programming is the new literacy that every kid must learn in this digital world. The earlier they are introduced to it, the easier it becomes for them to pick it up.”
Today, Rex is a huge success having impacted over 10,000 students in its short tenure. It has taught students through partnerships and pilot programs with major organizations like Girl Scouts, YMCA, as well as camps and classes at reputed private schools such as Greenhill.
