Why Should My Child (And Yours) Learn To Code?

My children have special needs and often are not able to participate in a normal classroom routine.  As a result they spend a great deal of time on computers and know their way around!  But I want them to be able to dream and build for their dreams – plan.  Coding will help make this a reality!

  1. Ideas will become reality. If they can dream it, they can build it with a computer!

  3. Kids learn faster when they are young.
  4. Coding encourages critical thinking and problem solving.
  5. Open your child to possibilities. With coding experience, kids can apply for computer science internships and jobs.

    I think this is a great way to keep up with technology since kids have to deal with it at such a young age and even in their toys. I took a C Programming course, having never programmed a bit and loved it. It was fun and I earned an A for my first programming class. Kids pick things up more easily than adults so this should be fun to them too.
