It has been great to see Kaede make connections between the games she plays on her tablet and the underlying programming. Kaede is gaining the understanding that you can be a creator, not just a user. We think that the knowledge that Kaede gains in Under the GUI classes will serve her in whatever path she takes in the future.

Simon has been able to use his coding skills at school, and has created some amazing projects. He built a very impressive video game for a social studies project that demonstrated his understanding of agricultural methods used in Ancient Egypt. Simon's interest in computers has only grown during his time at Under the GUI.

Xavier looks forward to attending his course every week. His interest in programming has also pushed him to practice at home, and even learn math concepts ahead of his school curriculum. The courses at Under the GUI feel like they’re preparing Xavier for industries of the future, where understanding code will likely be a major asset.

[My son] very much enjoys his GUI classes and looks forward to them each week. He enjoys learning “a new language” and working with his friends in class. I like that my son is learning an important skill in a supportive environment. He’s stretching himself in terms of logical and linear thinking. If a child is interested in programming, it’s a great environment.

My son Cooper absolutely loves going to the coding classes at Under the GUI! He gets excited every Friday night when I tell him that’s what he is doing on Saturday morning. Classes are fun and educational and Cooper has designed some really cool games. The staff are great and very accommodating if classes are missed!

Under the GUI has really taken an effort to get to know Sophia and support her in her learning. As a parent, I like the fact that my daughter feels enabled to enter the world of computer programming. The logic and math skills she learns enrich her basic school curriculum, teaching her different ways of thinking about things.

The wisdom and patience of the Under the GUI teachers allowed even the most difficult concepts to seem within my grasp. Finally, if I had to sum up my experience at UTG in one word it would be “enthusiastic” as I never once got the impression that a teacher was anything less that enthusiastic to bestow his or her students with knowledge.
