What is the Coding Connector?

The Innovation Connector is a traditional full-service business resource center (incubator) with the main purpose of supporting and accelerating the creation of successful technology-based and emerging companies in the Muncie community. One way this is accomplished is by advancing the entrepreneurial culture within businesses, schools, families and organizations. Current research indicates that “coding” is the new language of the next generation. Nearly half of the top jobs in demand in the United State are directly related to coding and programming.

With an eye on the future of our community, the Innovation Connector launched the Coding Connector on January 1, 2017 to help fill this need.  This initiative is intended to reach school aged youth in first through twelfth grades.  The courses offered are for females and males, beginners and advanced, and students from all social-economic backgrounds.

By teaming with TechWise Academy, the Coding Connector combines a state-of-the-art facility with fiber based internet access, computer resources, an active marketing and business center and the absolute best coding instructors and facilities in our community.

Please consider having your daughters and sons join us on this exciting and educational journey.  Coding does not have to be difficult to learn and we make it fun to learn.  Please join us as we teach your children …
