I'm pleasantly surprised that my 10 year-old son enjoys learning scratch coding so much. Vikas is a really wonderful instructor. He really knows how to teach kids to code. He makes it fun, and he knows how to inspire Ryan to apply his new coding skills and creativity into his projects. Also, Vikas always provides a detailed summary at the end of each class. I really appreciate that as a parent!
