First Code Academy was founded with the mission to provide students with digital literacy and computational thinking skills and empowering them to become creators with technology. Using proprietary curriculum adapted from Silicon Valley high schools, our after-school learning programs are incorporated in learning environments designed to stimulate inquiry based learning, logical thinking and creative problem solving.
In 2012, Michelle was working in Silicon Valley as a software engineer and volunteered to teach programming to primary and secondary school students at a program operated at Stanford campus. During that time, she observed how the millennials (digital natives) interact and create with technology and reflected upon her education in Hong Kong.
Moving back to Hong Kong in 2013, Michelle then began to offer coding and STEM courses and develop curriculum for primary and secondary students to learn not just coding skills, but also computational thinking. Since then, our team has taught mobile applications, games, 3D Printing and animation to over 4,000 students from age 5 and above in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan.
We are excited to empower our next generation to become creative leaders in the digital era, for their future career and for driving social change. Join our journey! 🙂
