As CEO and founder of CodeREV Kids, Evan draws from his experience as an education entrepreneur, STEM educator, and lead product manager for education software. Evan had built multiple education systems, presented about gbl and pbl in tech at ISTE, and has been covered by ABC, CBS, and Business Rockstars.
As Evan became familiar with local school curricula in his 14 years teaching STEM, he grew to see coding as the missing link that was not being taught in schools. Having built his own websites for his own business and then diving deeper into front end development, Evan felt learning coding online should be more engaging and fun, and more educational than the content he found online. With this in mind, he built kidslovecode with a stellar team of educators and software engineers to help kids of all types learn to code online in a project based, affordable format.
