No matter where their future takes them, today’s kids will undoubtedly benefit from early exposure to programming. As they are growing up surrounded by digital technology, it’s important that they obtain the right skills and knowledge to help them successfully navigate and compete in our digital world. Unfortunately, traditional schools and curricula are not yet providing kids with these crucial competencies. That’s where we come in!
Learning to code doesn’t just teach kids how to write computer programs and apps or program robots – it’s also a great way for them to develop other key competencies such as critical analysis, problem solving, logic, patience, and persistence. Creating things from scratch is rewarding and empowering, and the possibilities are as endless as their imagination.
Don’t just take it from us, though. Check out these resources that discuss the wider importance of including programming and coding in kids’ education.
