Volunteer Learning Scientist: Help us make sure our coding classes are effective and fun for kids!
We're looking for volunteers to provide classroom support for our Coding Coaches and students. Learning Scientists will monitor classes, step in as necessary to provide educational interventions, and help Coaches make high-level strategic decisions to ensure all students achieve the best possible learning outcomes.
If you are interested in volunteering in classrooms, MetaCoders will provide you all the training and materials you need to make a difference as a Learning Scientist.

MetaCoders’ mission is to prepare students for the future by not just teaching coding, but teaching students how to learn new programming languages. Programming languages come and go, so students need to be ready to learn the next language - whatever that may be! This means MetaCoders spends time teaching students about their brains and how they learn!
For the past 7 years, the founders of MetaCoders have been pioneering innovative approaches to teaching students coding. MetaCoders operated as a for-profit for several years as we honed our skills as educators and developed new technologies to better engage our students. Now, MetaCoders is teaching students nationwide!Today, MetaCoders is teaching students how to code in 8 U.S. cities. MetaCoders offers weekly classes and summer camps to kids in K-10th grade.
We'll work with your schedule.
