Say Hello to CodeBot!

CodeBot is here!

Firia Labs celebrated the CodeBot launch in June, and have been busy promoting it ever since! You may have seen us at ISTE, CSTA, WeTeach, Infosys Pathfinders, and regional conferences this summer. The interest in a robot specifically designed to teach Python has been high. This little bot bridges the gap between block-based and text-based coding beautifully! Your students that have already been through Jumpstart to Python are going to LOVE this curriculum!

Welcome back to school!

This summer has been busy at Firia Labs, but we are excited for the 2019-2020 school year! In June, we welcomed Amber Merrill, a National Board Certified teacher with 15 years' experience, full time! Amber was one of our first beta testing teachers and has been collaborating with Firia Labs ever since. She will be leading training and curriculum development for our team, including managing an online collaboration of CodeSpace teachers on Facebook. Follow her on Twitter and Instagram! @FirianEducator


If you haven't been to the Educator Resources section of our website lately, you are missing out! As Firia Labs traveled the country this summer meeting and training teachers, we took notes about what you want and need in a curriculum. Many of those requests have already been fulfilled! Explore the "Firia Labs Teacher Resources" folder in Google Drive for more!
