Our twin boys, Jake and Liam, participated in 'The I.T. Factor' summer coding program, and it was a game-changer for them. Both of our sons have different learning styles and interests, and the program was able to cater to each of them individually. Jake, who loves gaming, was thrilled to learn how games are developed, while Liam, who is more into web design, enjoyed creating his own website. The hands-on projects and the collaborative environment kept them engaged and eager to learn more. The skills they acquired over the summer have given them a solid foundation in technology, and they've become more confident in their abilities. We highly recommend 'The I.T. Factor' to any parent looking to give their child a head start in the world of coding and technology.

"As a parent, I was thrilled to see my daughter, Emily, so engaged and enthusiastic about learning during her time in 'The I.T. Factor' summer coding program. Emily has always had a knack for technology, but this program really helped her take that interest to the next level. The instructors were incredibly supportive and made complex concepts accessible and fun. Emily not only learned coding languages but also developed critical thinking and problem-solving skills. She came home after every class excited to share what she had learned and even started working on her own coding projects. 'The I.T. Factor' truly ignited a passion in her, and I couldn’t be happier with the experience."

Syriah Miller

"My son, Brice participated in 'The I.T. Factor' summer coding program, and it was an incredible experience for him. Brice has always been curious about how things work, and this program satisfied that curiosity in the best possible way. The curriculum was well-structured, starting with the basics and gradually introducing more advanced topics. What impressed me the most was the way the instructors made learning fun and interactive. Brice particularly enjoyed the group projects, where he learned the importance of teamwork and communication. Since completing the program, Brice has expressed a strong interest in pursuing a career in technology. 'The I.T. Factor' didn’t just teach him coding; it inspired him to dream big and follow his passion."
