ABOUT TEKIE :
Tekie is a live coding platform for kids that uses the power of storytelling, to make learning to code a movie-like experience. The company has built the world’s first animated series on coding that guides students through a cinematic journey where they solve problems and challenges using coding concepts like variables & strings, loops and data structure. Tekie teaches Text-based Coding, which involves actual coding language syntax rather than basic drag and drop functions provided by competitors.
Teki’s Text-Based Coding curriculum ensures that students write actual code during the program, giving them a distinct advantage and deeper knowledge of the subject. Tekie has been garnering attention from all sides because of its long-format animated educational series which consists of 45 episodes that teach the basics of programming. The super intuitive coding platform has an inbuilt code simulator, workbooks, projects, and a mentor to clarify all the doubts on the go and to help students analyse algorithms. Tekie currently has more than 20000 students enrolled on the platform.
Tekie is planning to expand the offerings in other markets like the Middle East, Canada, and the UK after successfully establishing a presence in India and the company has grown from just seven employees to 50+ employees.
