CodeJoy is an online education company that teaches robotics and coding virtually to students and teachers all over the world. From our multi-camera teaching studio in Pittsburgh, we’ve served over 12,000 students and teachers since 2020. We’ve been featured in Make: Magazine, and worked with clients ranging from UC Berkeley and UNICEF, to school districts across the country. We use common tools like the BBC micro:bit, Hummingbird Robotics Kit, and Finch Robot, plus common craft supplies like cardboard and hot glue, to create fun experiences, engaged learning, and approachable follow up projects. We’re engaging more students and teachers than ever in CS and robotics education!

Kelsey Derringer, CodeJoy’s co-founder and on-screen teacher, is an educator with 15+ years of classroom and professional development experience. She specializes in teaching robotics and coding to non-CS teachers, helping them bring creative robotics into other subject areas.

No materials for the event yet, sorry! Meanwhile...

During this live, interactive session, participants will code and control real mini golfing robots remotely, LIVE! Using our online video and coding platform, CodeJoy.Live, watch as your code controls our cardboard robots during our Robot Mini Golf session. Play along with our main character Elby, chat with Matt the Robot, and code and control real robots remotely!

During the workshop, we’ll also chat about our services: Interactive student sessions, hands-on virtual PD for teachers, and robotics hardware sales. We’ll discuss how we’ve helped school districts in over a dozen states start and scale CS and robotics education - by serving specifically under-engaged students and low tech confidence teachers with tailored student sessions, scalable teacher PD, and creative robotics tools like the BBC micro:bit and Hummingbird Robotics Kit.
