@groklearning

Fun fact - In 2019 every school kid in Australia from Grades 3-8 is learning to code. And lots of them are doing it through courses on Grok Learning.

Our platform helps teachers teach things like Python, Web and micro:bit. One of their favourite things is our auto-marker - we give feedback to students by running their code on our servers (a sandboxing nightmare!).

We've got interesting problems to solve, like - How do you simulate a micro-controller for marking? Can we design an interface that helps you understand code? How do you write a course that kids find engaging?

Our platform is built on Python (with other stuff) and our office is over in Glebe, near Sydney University. If CS education interests you, you should chat to us.
