CodeWizardsHQ’s community spreads around the world.  We are lucky to have amazing families like the Winn family! Their family consists of Dad, Mom, an adult brother, Lee, 13, and Lee’s maternal grandparents. They also have 2 dogs!

Lee and his family were kind enough to answer a few questions about their #codingadventure.

 

Lee’s answers: 

Q. What’s your coding background?

I took a summer coding class in 2018. It covered the basics of HTML and CSS. Also, while I was in the summer class, I got introduced to Scratch. I now do some Scratch, but I mainly focus on CWHQ’s classes.

Q: What are your family’s hobbies?

My dad, granddad, and I enjoy playing golf. My dad and I enjoy fishing as well. In the summer, my family likes to go swimming as well. My mom, grandmother, and brother enjoy playing games with us whenever we get the opportunity.

Q: What subjects do you enjoy in school?

I enjoy Math, Science, and History.

Q: Anything else fun and interesting you’d like to share about your family?

My dad was a missionary for a period of time. He went to Zambia, China, and India. While in China, my family adopted me from an orphanage.

Q: So how did you find out about CodeWizardsHQ?

My mom found it while searching the web for online coding websites.

Q: What are some things you like about learning coding with CWHQ?

I enjoy learning especially about CSS and how it changes and intertwines HTML. I also enjoyed learning Python code in Intro to Programming.

 

Lee’s Parents’ answers:

Q: Do you have a specific experience or story you’d like to share that your student has mentioned about classes at CWHQ?

Lee has truly enjoyed both teachers in his first two classes. He is naturally a very hard worker and has really benefitted from their encouragement and acknowledgement of this. He looks forward to each class and even made certain he could attend class while on a recent vacation. He always shares what he has learned and what has happened in each class immediately after it.

Q: What role will coding have in your family’s future?

Lee is loving everything Coding so far. At this point, he plans to take all the CodeWizardsHQ classes and hopes to do one of their internships. He is thinking about Coding for a career. He already works in our family business, shipping all correspondence courses, so he knows he could use Coding for the website eventually as well.

Q: What goals or dreams do you for your children in relation to coding?

It is quite clear that Coding will be extremely useful far into the future. It is quickly reaching the point that it should probably be mandatory for our youth. We want Lee to have as many tools to prepare him for today and tomorrow as possible and believe learning Coding is the key to that. We know he could have a great career in it, but of course, that will be his decision.

 

Lee has taken two courses at CodeWizardsHQ, here is what his teacher Lynn had to say about him:

Lee is extremely hard working and fastidious. He pushes every assignment far beyond what is required. He takes time to add extra code and content, embellishing and turning each project into its own unique and complete creation. Lee is also inquisitive, courteous, and kind. He is a joy to teach!

 

At CodeWizardsHQ, we know our students are our top priority!

Thanks for allowing us to spotlight Lee! We are lucky to have him as part of our community!

Student Spotlight: Andrew

Meet the Taggart family from Jensen, Utah, and find out how learning to code with CodeWizardsHQ has led Andrew to be our Student of the Month!

Here are two of Andrew’s Projects:

                      

CodeWizardsHQ’s community spreads around the world. We are lucky to have amazing families like the Taggart family! They have three children, Andrew, 11, Connor, 9, and Lizzy, 7. Andrew was kind enough to answer a few questions about their #codingadventure.

Q. What’s your coding background, Andrew?

A: I’ve always enjoyed technology and I found out about Scratch when I was 8. I quickly outgrew it and my programs became too long for Scratch’s old software to handle. So I started programming Python and HTML and a few years later, I decided that I wanted to take a coding class and that’s how we found CWHQ.

Q: What are your family’s hobbies?

A: Camping, riding bikes, fishing, playing games together

Q: What subjects do your children enjoy in school?

A: Sciences and technology

Q: Anything else fun and interesting you’d like to share about your family?

A: We have a large market garden that is almost 2 acres where we grow and sell vegetables to families in our community through our family business. We work together as a family to grow and harvest vegetables.

Q: How did you find out about CWHQ?

A: A Google search

Q: What are some things you like about learning to code with CWHQ?

A: My teacher, the community at CWHQ

Q: Last of all, what plans do you have Coding in your family’s future?

A: I will be working on our website for our family business as well as writing apps for my parents to help with the management of the garden and customers.

Q: To Mr. & Mrs. Taggart: What goals or dreams for your children in relation to coding?

A: We hope that Andrew can write the programs that he envisions to create to help and better the world around him.

What his teacher, Ivann Grande, says about Andrew:

Andrew’s interest in coding has constantly been developing throughout his young life. He shows discipline and interest in anything that he does. He will go out of his way to customize his projects, just so he can continue coding. Andrew is always the first to help answer any questions his classmates may have and always involved in the CodewizardsHQ community. It is always a joy to have him in class and I’ve enjoyed his presence in every class.

Andrew also shared with me his family farm website which I absolutely love. Search “Heritage Family Gardens”. The first photos you see are of him and his family. In the group photo, he is the one on the far right. He was talking about how he’s been busy harvesting all his plants these past few weeks on his 20+ acre farm with his family. He and his family sell their produce to nearby towns in Utah using their website. Such a sweet and genuine family. I’m glad you’re doing a spotlight on him.

Some of his projects are very simple and not as “flashy” as other students, but this project shows a bit of his innovation. This project was made so that random cars are loaded into the page every time it loads.
