TechWise Academy, a new technology code reading and writing academy, will launch its first Level 1 course Saturday, September 26 at Innovation Connector, located at 1208 W. White River Blvd., from 9 a.m.–Noon, for youth ages 9–13.

Learning to write and read computer coding is as easy for kids to master as regular reading and writing. Make it fun, and they will learn. That’s what Ryan Hunter and Brandon Coppernoll, founders of TechWise Academy believe, and why they developed the academy for kids and their parents. “Computer programming starts with coding. Web developers, software engineers, and programmers are high demand jobs these days, so teaching kids early, the basic skills, just like we teach them traditional reading, and writing gives them a head start,” Hunter said. Coding is also about problem-solving. Something every child may put to use regardless of their eventual career path. TechWise Academy is committed to providing a fun environment so kids gain confidence, learn to create change, and develop ideas that may be applied to any challenge they encounter.
