Our Story

Founder Ken Aspeslagh teaching a class.

Most of us spend our day interacting with advanced technology. Only by understanding the basics of computer science can we begin to see that there is no magic inside our computers.

Confronted with the speed of change in technology, learning computer basics can't be limited to learning a specific skill. At Code & Circuit, we teach the fundamentals of the machine, work our way up to programming, build confidence, and discover how engineering is a tool for problem solving. 

Students go on to explore and create projects based on their interests, with the resources and guidance of the Code & Circuit community.

Our Mission


At Code & Circuit, our goal is to encourage and motivate kids in computer science and engineering.


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


Providing knowledge and guidance to students who want to learn. Helping them achieve their goals and make their ideas a reality.


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.


Access to the latest technology and newest gadget creates a feeling of excitement that inspires.
