I’m all for the children having a space to create and be creative, but why does this feel like the coding boot camps racket that plagued us for the last decade 🤔

Because it pretty much is that.

Whenever there is a large market that traditional schools don’t address, you end up with a swath of people trying to address the gap.

I don’t think it’s particularly bad, though it really depends what services they are actually offering and how much it costs. There will likely be a range of quality.
