Summer Programming
STEM Coding Lab is happy to provide summer programming for new and existing partners. We have developed age-appropriate computer science programs that will reinforce the utility of computer science in everyday life. These programs include:
  • Coding in the Arts
  • Game Design & StoryCode
  • Robotics: Hummingbird Kit
Interested middle school students can participate by registering at one or both of our open partner locations.
CS Explorers
STEM Coding Lab is excited to continue our partnership with the Pittsburgh Technology Council and FortyX80 (PTC) for our 2023 CS Explorers summer camp. This partnership will provide instruction designed to enrich student understanding of computer science, allow students to learn about professional CS career pathways from industry professionals, and participate in hands-on activities designed to inspire curiosity and galvanize the next generation of STEM professionals.
It is currently envisioned that this program will focus on 6 themes, all of which are central to the computer science industry, including:
  • Robotics/Advanced Manufacturing
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • The Internet
  • Cybersecurity
  • Game Design & Animation
  • Healthcare/BioTech
After-School & In-School Classes
STEM Coding Lab provides computer programming classes, on a full-time or part-time basis, to K-8 schools and afterschool programs that wouldn’t otherwise offer them to their students.

We are proud to partner with the Pittsburgh Public School District, as well as various community organizations, charter schools, and afterschool programs to offer free or low-cost CS classes to the full spectrum of K-8 students. These project-based enrichment classes expose our students to a wide range of CS concepts, including:

  • Computer Science Fundamentals
  • Robotics
  • Animation & Gaming
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Website Design & Development
  • App Design & Development
  • Career Exploration
  • Cybersecurity
Virtual Program
In an effort to provide more accessibility to underserved communities, we are currently offering free online classes dedicated to helping students continue to develop computer science knowledge during times of remote learning. Our classes cover a wide range of topics, from web and game design to an introductory class on programming using block-based languages.
Using a combination of onsite (course structure, materials, computer hardware and components, etc.) and online resources, we provide exposure and training to our children in computer programming and computer hardware. Our staff and volunteers are trained specialists with backgrounds in computer science instruction.
