Coding and programming are the careers of the future, and possibly the most influential careers of the present. Our interconnected lives, with multitudes of conveniences, and unimpeded communication abilities, are built on code. Without coders and programmers, the very fabric of our digital society would cease to exist. That is why organizations like Carolina Kid Coders, in downtown Mineral Springs, are so important.

Ken Adelglass, the founder of Carolina Kid Coders, teaches his students a skill of immense value. Code is in everything that we do, Adelglass said. It’s in everything from our phones and tablets, to our washing machines and dishwashers. It’s a skill, he said, that kids are going to need. 

Carolina Kid Coders offers multiple learning formats, and difficulty levels, for young people of all skill levels. With a drop-in program, appointment classes and a summer coding camp, there is a class to fit all schedules as well.

Whatever your child’s programming goal is, it can be met at Carolina Kid Coders. Whether they want to be a pro at making Roblox games or a whizz at making Minecraft mods, Adelglass said, there is a course at Carolina Kid Coders for that. Other courses that Adelglass offers include a lego robotics course, and digital electronics courses featuring the Arduino open-source prototyping platform, and Raspberry Pi single-board computers.

There are tremendous opportunities in the field of coding, Adelglass said, due to a shortage of technical employees with the skills necessary to do the jobs. These skills are exactly what Adelglass hopes to teach to his students, all while providing an environment of collaboration and mentorship that inspires familiarity and confidence in what can seem like a totally foreign field.
