An initiative to promote coding literacy among school students and help them understand the technology apart from what the current school syllabus provides, thereby equipping them to be technically bright citizens of tomorrow.
KuttyCoders is an initiative to promote coding literacy among school students and help them understand the technology, thereby equipping them to be technically bright citizens of tomorrow. Our core philosophy is to use the power of self-learning and peer mentoring within communities to achieve this outcome. We are currently based out of Kerala, India.
Founded by working professionals and active members of various tech communities, KuttyCoders aims to nurture a technical mindset and to prepare school students to face real-life challenges and to implement a peer to peer learning network by bridging the gap between teachers and students. The first chapter of KuttyCoders was hosted in AISAT, Kalamassery. The 7-day event covering 21st-century technological skills - Web Development, App Development, Python, and Actions on Google marked the participation of 10 students spanning the age of 10 to 17. From the overwhelming feedback received from the students and parents of participated students, KuttyCoders took off.
In a short span of 12 months, We at KuttyCoders conducted 6 community events spanning 4 countries connecting 5000 students worldwide. Kids got great technology exposure and developed skills in multiple technologies in a short period, we are looking to scale up this program so that kids in the entire state of Kerala can be benefited.
