Innovative, Cutting Edge Instructional Materials
Our lessons are geared to build students skills in computer science and coding language fluency. We offer lessons that expose students to a wide variety of computer science skills including software development, web design, and mobile app development.
In-depth Professional Development
We train teachers to effectively deliver computer science instruction through project based learning. Our professional development conveys effective teaching strategies and introduces them to valuable tools that allow teachers to better engage their students in computer science.
21st Century Skills
Students receive exposure and training in crucial computer science skills. Students can also experience a wide variety of courses that train them in marketable and needed coding languages.
College and Career Readiness
Courses and materials are made to give students the soft skills needed to be successful in college classrooms as well as the workforce.
Curation and Standards Based Teaching
We help schools curate what courses and what teachers are best suited to teach our materials. We canhelp you create standalone courses or integrate materials into existing courses. Our materials also cover your college and career readiness standard requirements and provide an innovative program for accredidation.
Student Engagement/Teacher Development
Allow students to be more engaged with school and their future. It’s shown that when students are taking pride in their work and enjoy school, they perform better and show up more. Professional development services also allow you to provide an opportunity for teachers to be trained in new innovative teaching techniques and master their destiny as STEM educators.
Multiple Ways to Use
Utilize in science, math, technical education, computer science, business, or a wide variety of classes. We have had success in teaching a wide variety of students from alternative education to AP honors students. After school or summer programs are also available as well as our school day materials. This allows schools to gain support for new programs and ignite the spark of curiosity in students about STEM.
Why teach STEM and coding?
“The STEM workforce is exploding and is expected to continue to grow well into the future. From 2000 to 2012, STEM jobs grew nearly 8%, from 2010 to 2018 that increase is expected to jump to nearly 17%. That is why STEM education is vital to the careers of the future and what better way to encourage student participation than by putting before them teachers who have a passion and experience within STEM fields. President Obama called for 100,000 new STEM teachers over the next ten years, now even though the President and I don’t agree on many things, on this we do agree that the importance of STEM education and putting those types of teachers in the classroom is paramount.” - Rep. Bucshon (R-IN)

As teachers, we saw our students not getting crucial and needed skills that they would need to be successful. In the technical workforce of today, students need skills in STEM subjects that will give them a leg up when trying to enter the workforce.
At the same time, teachers are constantly asked to do more and more, not allowing time to be innovative. Code Red Education aims to provide educators with ready to use lessons and instructional materials coupled with professional development and support that will allow them to teach computer science and coding in order to prepare students for high demand, high paying careers in STEM.
