Under the GUI Richmond has partnered with the Richmond Public Library this summer and is providing a series of free coding for kids workshops for kids 9 – 13 from May to August! Where kids will learn how to code from one of our mentors at Under the GUI Academy

The students at the workshop will get a free PixelPAD account which is a platform that uses Python to teach kids how to code. . Reserve your space at the library’s website


These series of workshops are working with students to develop the skills necessary to culminate in a competition or “Richmond hackathon” at the end of August, where students are challenged to create an app within 6 hours in a team of 3. Last year Under the GUI students had the privilege of attending the very first Richmond Public Library’s Youth Hackathon, sponsored by IGG and UTG Academy, and we’re hoping this year is going to be bigger and better !

If you are interested in our Richmond Coding and Tech summer camp programs, check out our programs here!. Under the GUI Academy is providing three types of summer camps programs at Richmond this summer, see details below.

This summer, our Richmond Summer Camp is going to provide weeks of awesome science, technology, engineering and coding camps (STEM)! Kids learn in all technology sectors including Robotics, Engineering, Coding, and Animation.
Here is a glance of what our summer camp programs look like:

Our coding & animation summer camp teaches Python and app development. This is intended for students who have no prior knowledge of Python and is a good introduction to real programming concepts and goes beyond the drag & drop coding interface. At the end of this camp, students will have created their own versions of their favorite apps that they can share online!

Our Robotics summer camp program will teach the basics of Arduinos, Raspberry Pi’s and making electronic circuit prototypes. From blinking LEDs to complex flying robots, this camp will teach students how to connect components on a breadboard and do basic Arduino programming to control them.

Our Engineering Olympics summer camp will introduce students of all ages to the exciting world of Engineering through a full week of competitions and engaging activities. Activities and challenges will include Giant Catapult, High Egg Drop, Popsicle Stick Bridge, Robotic Arm Transporter and more.
