Kid Coders was founded by Rebecca Carmichael in 2014 to teach children how to code.

Rebecca holds a bachelor degree in Computer Science from The University of Newcastle and has many years experience working as an analyst programmer in the Information Technology (IT) sector.

Rebecca has taught hundreds of children to code in schools and preschools across Newcastle and through her Kid Coder school holiday camps. She has a passion for teaching children and understands how to teach complex concepts in a simple fun way to keep her students engaged.

Understanding why the code doesn’t work and finding different ways to code a solution involves critical thinking and problem-solving. Rebecca’s background in Computer Science and her industry experience allows her to provide expert insight in these areas and ensure the development of these skills in her students. This expertise differentiates Rebecca from the general classroom teacher.

Kid Coders offer a variety of services from classroom teaching to school holiday camps. To find out more see our services page or contact Rebecca.

I Am Eliza was conceived by Rebecca in 2017 to encourage more girls to participate in coding and other STEM fields.

Lakeside School were delighted to have Bec deliver professional learning to staff around coding in the classroom on our staff development day for term two. Bec's presentation and delivery was professional, engaging and fun for all involved, with many staff commenting that the "fog has been lifted" in regards to computer coding at school. Lakeside School highly recommends Bec for staff development!

My two boys, aged 7 and 9,  have attended Kid Coders on two occasions and have loved it every time. I have been concerned about the lack of computer coding being taught in Australian schools after hearing it is mandatory in the US. Kid Coders has given my boys an excellent introduction to coding in a fun and educational way. Rebecca is absolutely amazing with children. All kids will love her attentiveness and enthusiasm!
