Our History

Summer 2019
Humble Beginnings

BX Coding started with two weeks of camp in Elliot's dining room. Duncan and Elliot taught a dozen students in Scratch and Unity, placing a TV on an upside-down laundry basket to display their custom curriculum!

Winter 2020
Out of the Dining Room

Improving on their curriculum from the summer, Duncan and Elliot taught 15 Bexley Middle School students during a 12 week after-school program in a real classroom!

Summer 2020
The Year of Zoom

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BX Coding pivoted to online camps, restructuring their curriculum to successfully teach dozens of students across the US and Canada.

Summer 2021
Back In-Person Again

In partnership with the Bexley Recreation and Parks department, Duncan and Elliot ran two weeks of camp at Bexley Middle School, teaching 40 students in Scratch and Unity! 

Fall 2021 - Spring 2022
Outreach at the YMCA

During the 2021-2022 school year, BX Coding ran weekly coding classes for elementary and middle school students in Whitehall YMCA after-school programs. 

Summer 2022
Curricula Expansion

BX Coding taught sixty students across three weeks of camp. Along with iterating on their Scratch and Unity curriculum, Duncan and Elliot added new camps to teach Python, engineering, circuits, and CAD.

Summer 2023
100+ Students

Expanding their summer camp offerings to Columbus Academy Summer Experience, BX Coding taught 120 students across 9 camps. Director of Instruction Ava Wanderseleben joined BX Coding in early 2022.
