Founded in 2017, Little Bytes is the world's first live online programming academy for K-8 students. In most school districts, computer science education is rarely available before students entering high school. By then, it's often too late to have any impact on their opinion. Little Bytes bridges this education gap, bringing tough computer science concepts into simple, little "bytes".
Little Bytes is the proud recipient of Stanford University's 2018 she++ Fellowship and the 2018 Founders Live Detroit pitch competition grand award.
The LittleBytes application takes only a few minutes to fill out, and admissions are released on a rolling basis to students.
Our team will send you the onboarding process, including payment information and pre-work.
Online LittleBytes classes are held on weekends, plus optional office hours.
We offer $50 referral discounts for new and returning students to use. Contact us at email@example.com and we'll be glad to discuss the details with you!

"This class deserves a 5 star rating! The way Prianka teaches coding is understandable, she holds office hours to discuss code, and she gives us resources to help us every step of the way. I can’t wait for the next class she will teach!"
"I used to think coding was really hard, but then I took this class and I realized anybody can do it. I learned how to make websites and now I am working on starting a computer science club at my upper elementary school."
“I am so glad that I discovered Little Bytes. My teacher, Ms. Prianka Subrahmanyam is very thorough and she takes the time to explain everything. I took two courses, web development, and app development. I enjoyed it a lot. I am looking forward to taking more courses.”
"I know my mom and dad do some sort of coding stuff at work but it looked really boring until I actually tried it and made a game. I sent it to my friends and they loved it! Prianka and Adi are both really interesting teachers."
"My name is Srithan, and I am interested in computer programming. This class expanded my knowledge of coding and gaming, and was really fun and helpful."
"Thanks for igniting interest into the field of computer science. I did not know anything about programming before, but over the last two courses , I have made lot of progress and I think this is something that I am going to be pursuing passionately."
