Code & Circuit is a nonprofit discovery lab for K-12 students to explore technology and computer programming with like-minded peers. Using state-of-the-art equipment, classes encourage creativity, innovation, and self-expression via coding, robotics, and circuitry. There is no right or wrong once you come through our door — only discovery, experimentation, and never-ending surprises. 

Since 2014, more than 700 kids from grades K-12 have enjoyed our after school classes, family workshops and unique vacation programs. 

All classes and programs take place at our classroom in Amesbury, MA. 

Our Mission

Everyone knows that robots are cool, and that computer games are fun, but creating your own robot, or your own game is a life-changing experience.



We're building a community of students and instructors, and that creates a feeling of belonging; a place where students can be themselves and feel valued. 




By providing knowledge and guidance to students who want to learn, we're helping them make their ideas a reality. The right mentor can be transformative.

Latest Tech


Access to the latest technology and newest gadgets creates a feeling of excitement that inspires. We're always experimenting with the next big thing.
