There are many ways to empower kids, one of the them is coding.
So what is coding? Coding is the behind scene language with each app, phone and website you use today.
Coding is becoming integral part of many professions, as the world is going through digital transformation and will require solid digital skills. It’s been proven that learning to code reinforces math skills, helping kids visualize abstract concepts and apply math to real-world situations.
In today’s digital world, coding is a fundamental skill alongside math and reading, but too few kids have the opportunity to learn to program because it is rarely taught in school or its not ongoing learning.
Perhaps the most prevalent is to prepare youth for jobs for future and also create more jobs for others by becoming innovators.
It also teaches logical communication, strengthening both verbal and written skills.
Just like any other language, coding can help your child develop academic skills applicable to any grade level, in addition to building critical life skills like organization, perseverance, and problem solving. Coding instills qualities like creativity that help kids perform better in school.
When they code, kids learn through experimentation and strengthen their brains, allowing them to find creative solutions to problems.
