Codapillar began when two young technology students were tasked with teaching a few summer camps and workshops on how to code. After trying countless resources and tools to help students, the same problems kept surfacing, and students were getting frustrated. Eventually, we decided to go off-book, create a custom curriculum and teach them the tools that professional web developers were using. We saw a huge leap in our students success, and also in their happiness. Now we're running into these students at hackathons, and watching them build incredible software for the future.
As our world becomes increasingly digital, we need to start understanding how the digital world works earlier in life. Students need to start being exposed to code and computers early on. Even more importantly than simply exposing our students to computer science, is to give them a positive experience with it.
Codapillar sets out to provide the highest quality curriculum and learning and teaching materials so that all parties involve feel confident in their ability to build cool, useful things on the computer. Not only students, but the teachers should feel inspired. And any school should be able to afford that experience.
Codapillar's unique platform provides a space for the students to write, test, and play with their code, in the same place that their learning materials are integrated. The students work with their classmates, school, or community at large to solve technical problems, and also to interact with their friends through creative technology.
Julie and Olga met as students at Pace University, working in the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems. While working together on organizing and teaching technology at two summer camps focussed on STEM education, they quickly became close friends. Olga was finishing up a BBA in Finance, while Julie was finishing her BS in Computer Science. Their skillsets complimented each other's perfectly. It didn't take long to realize that this was the perfect team of two hard workers, who shared a passion and vision for empowering the world with technology. After working on several large projects, from summer camps and web development seminars to a hardware/software project based out of Finland, Julie and Olga decided to team up to make Codapillar.
Julie graduated from Pace University in May 2015 with a BS in Computer Science, and minors in Art and Mathematics. While at Pace University, she was the executive director and lead developer of Seidenberg Creative Labs, a web and mobile development agency run by students. While in college, Julie discovered an unexpected love for teaching as coach for the Lego Robotics team with the middle school students at the Chapin School. During the summers, Julie mentored and taught at the Seidenberg Summer Scholars Experience and Pace STEM Camp, while working with her peers to develop apps for use in classrooms around New York City. After several experiences as a Teaching Assistant in various web design and development courses, Julie has returned to Pace University as an adjunct professor, teaching Web Scripting. She also enjoys volunteering at the FIRST Technology Challenge tournaments around the country.
