Our Journey

How Did Code Wiz Get Started?

Ruth Agbaji is the CEO, Founder, and Nerd-In-Chief of Code Wiz and she knows first-hand the power in learning to code. Born in Nigeria, Ruth hacked her way into the world of computer science by teaching herself to code.

The promise of creating something from nothing – with just a few keywords and a laptop – ignited her imagination. Agbaji knew she had found her calling.

Agbaji received her Masters in Computer Science from Tufts University and worked as a software engineer for tech giants like Microsoft and Kronos. Her entrepreneurial spirit and desire to impact the kids’ lives by sparking their interest in STEM led Agbaji to quit her day job and launch Code Wiz.

Agbaji’s initial vision was to have a center where an interactive and project-driven approach to technology would inspire kids of all abilities to unleash their imagination and potential. Her systems, processes, and curriculum make the Code Wiz model the premier learn-to-code child education franchise.
