“Prior to college, I didn’t have any experience with coding, which is something I wish I had. Due to this, I was very excited to help expose these students to coding, and especially to see the students’ faces light up when they finished a level of the coding game.”

Natasha Saputra

Business & Computer Science Major

“I grew up taking online coding courses such as this one, and it’s the reason I’m pursuing a career in computer science today.” 

Bhargav Malladi

“I didn’t start coding until I came to college, so I still remember what it is like to be brand new to coding and the things that may be misunderstood at first.”

Nicholas Spihlman

Computer Science Major

“I’m excited to get to know everyone and maintain a welcoming space! As someone who comes from a family of musicians, I used to feel like I wasn’t capable of studying computer science. It was only after a mentor shared her story about going into computer science in the 90s as a woman which inspired me to continue coding.”
