What is coding? Coding is the combination of computers and science, “Computer Science”. Who doesn’t love that combination? This generation of children has no fear of technology; they are literally “tech junkies.”
As parents every single one of us is working to “un-plug” our children each and every day. I am about to switch your focus and give you the tools you need as parents to take control of the tech and help you give your child the CODE ADVANTAGE.
“Great programmers are today’s ROCKSTARS” and we are about to ROCK OUT!
Computer science is “the art of blending human ideas and digital tools to increase our power. Computer scientists work in so many different areas: writing apps for phones, curing diseases, creating animated movies, working on social media, building robots that explore other planets and so much more.”
Computer science skills are exactly what our children need to be competitive in the global job market of the future!
