St. Johns County business brings coding, robots to kids

Rebeca Rodriguez knelt down and asked a robot to do kung fu.

The robot, named Johnny 5 after the hit ’80s movie “Short Circuit,” responded with a slow raising and lowering of his mechanical arms along with a meditative, “Om.”

The robot is one feature of Code Wiz in Fruit Cove, a business that allows kids to create in the fields of robotics, programming, 3D printing and other tech subjects, Rodriguez said. The business, a franchise, is at 530 State Road 13 Unit No. 5 and northwest St. Johns County.

Rebeca Rodriguez and Eliud Rivera own Code Wiz in Fruit Cove in northern St.  Johns County.  The new business offers children individualized classes in robotics, computer programming, 3D printing and other tech subjects.

The business offers after-school programs as well as birthday parties and courses for Girl Scouts.
