Frequently asked questions

  • Why is coding for kids important?

    Coding is quickly becoming a universal second language, a life skill that every child should have in their toolbelt — one that can propel them to becoming part of the next generation of innovators. Coding is fundamental to life-changing advancements in medicine, climate change, environmental conservation, and much more.

    As kids and teens learn to code, they also build essential skills like critical thinking, logic, and problem-solving. They learn to logically sequence events, create video games, tell good stories, and model real situations. They also learn computational thinking by developing algorithmic and design thinking abilities. Learning to code is also an excellent way to express their creativity and imagination.
