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 500 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.
