Free Licenses for Teacher Appreciation Week 2019!

This year we celebrate teachers from all over the world and reflect on all the work they do by sharing our gratitude with all our CodeCombat educators.

This year, we want to recognize the great work of all our CodeCombat educators. To say thank you we're offering free 1-week licenses to any teacher with an existing CodeCombat account! Simply choose what week you want to unlock (May 6-10 or May 13-17) and get access to all of CodeCombat, including project-based units like Game Development or Web Development. You'll find resources to support the full curriculum in your Educator Resource Hub.

Interested? Email Rob Arevalo ( with subject line “Teacher Appreciation Week” and include the following:

  • The quantity of 1-week licenses you'd like (1 per student)
  • The email address of your CodeCombat teacher account
  • Whether you'd like licenses for Week 1 (May 6-10) or Week 2 (May 13-17).

We hope this small gesture helps you inspire the spark that turns your student's dreams into reality and their imagination into innovation.
