Coding and Programming for kids... But Why?
Improves Math and Writing Skills
Coding helps children to be able to visualize abstract concepts, lets them apply math to real-world situations, and makes math fun and creative resulting in higher math scores over time. For Writing, kids who code understand the value of concision and planning, which results in better writing skills. This can lead to better writing skills that can be built upon as coding skills develop over time.
Develops Critical Thinking Skills
Learning to code helps kids develop critical thinking skills as well as the ability to solve problems. When children are working on solving a programming problem, trying to get the computer to do something, they are learning to look past the bigger picture and breakdown the problem into smaller, manageable tasks. They are able to make logical connections. Those skills aren’t needed just to make your computer do something, they are useful in everyday life as well.
Teaches the Power of Collaboration
Anyone can learn how to code—kids can learn alongside others of every race, gender, or background. Kids meet and learn how to collaborate with all kinds of peers, all joined by a common interest in technology. Classrooms and other in-person environments bring kids together for face-to-face collaboration.
Learning to code, like any new discipline, is a challenge. Thus, tackling complex problems—and making mistakes along the way—can be very frustrating. Coding teaches the valuable skill of persistence in the face of such challenges. Learning how to problem solve and look for solutions through research and collaboration builds this highly desirable skill.
Coding provides a competitive advantage when applying to colleges, internships, and jobs. If you possess a hot skill that many of your peers lack–such as the ability to code–you instantly appear more desirable in the eyes of potential college admissions officers and employers. Plain and simple.
No Commitments or Contracts
We are so certain that you will love what we offer your child that we are willing to have you attend without contracts or commitments and you can cancel your child's sessions at anytime should you not be happy with what they are doing in class. Zero charge or penalties for doing so!
