Join CodeCombat at ISTE 2019!

Are you ready for ISTE? We are! CodeCombat will have our biggest presence at ISTE ever and we can't wait to see you there.

In just two days, Philadelphia will be filled with educators ready to attend one of the largest and most comprehensive education technology conferences in the world. This year, CodeCombat has a jam-packed booth (#1000) with live presentations, hands-on demos, fun giveaways, and some exciting reveals!

10 Min Live Presentations

Want to learn more about teaching coding with no experience or creating games with CodeCombat? Everyday of the show we'll have informative live presentations right at the booth at various times so you don't have to miss a workshop or panel. After the presentation, try a hands-on demo and explore our teacher dashboard and try the game yourself!

Clever & AWS Partner Activities

We're excited to participate in activities with two of our awesome partners. On Tuesday the 25th, CodeCombat is hosting an exclusive educator mixer and AWS has generously helped make it one of our biggest teacher events ever.  

Stop by the Clever booth (#2838) to pick up your Superhero Mission Map. Then remember to head over to the CodeCombat booth (#1000) so we can add a sticker to your map. The more stickers you earn, the better the prizes!

ISTE 2019 Scholarship Sponsor

This year, ISTE launched a new scholarship program to help educators from diverse backgrounds and under resourced schools experience the professional learning and inspirational edtech community that ISTE provides. Among other things, recipients received conference registration and one-year of ISTE membership.

We're pleased to help an educator attend ISTE in an effort to honor our commitment to empower educators and support learners in diverse classrooms.

Exciting Reveals & More!
