It is universally known that kids should learn to code for a variety of reasons:
- Job opportunities (software development, robotics, Ai)
- Brain training
- Pathway to entrepreneurship
The problem many parents have, is that they themselves don’t know how to code … let alone teach it! StudioWeb solves that problem.

StudioWeb has been refined over the last 6 years, as we listened carefully to teachers and students. As the founder, I knew that it was important for me to be on the frontline (if you will,) so I could hear first hand, what teachers and students were saying. I took the support calls and emails.
Still today, I personally handle the support request because it helps me direct my developers to make StudioWeb even better. Teachers win because they deal with me directly, and StudioWeb benefits from direct feedback that’s been so valuable over the years.
