Why did you decide to teach others to code with Scratch?

Do you remember the first project you created with Scratch?

What does a typical session of Korbin’s Kode look like?

Korbin’s Kode is a youth-driven coding community focused on teaching kids aged 8–16 the basics of modern coding.

One thing that sets Korbin’s Kode apart from other coding camps is that you utilize peer teaching. Can you talk about that approach?

How do you measure success?

Last summer, you hosted a coding workshop at Rosemeade Public Library. Can you tell me about the event and your role in it?

Why is it important for kids to learn how to code?

What are you working on right now?
