Meet Our Mentors – Jaden Hamid

Jaden is one of our mentors based in San Francisco who can travel in-home to work with kids learning to code. He grew up in Hawaii and his laid back vibe is very welcoming for some of our youngest Scratch students. Let’s learn a little more about him!

When did you start to code?

I started to code freshman year of high school.

What do you find rewarding about teaching kids how to code?

Teaching kids to code is really fun. My favorite thing is seeing when the “light bulb” goes on when they finally get to a solution.

What is your favorite game or project you have created with a student?

My favorite projects to create with students are ones that we can play against each other. Examples include Pong, Tic Tac Toe, and more.
