WHY SHOULD YOUR KIDS LEARN PROGRAMMING?
Myth: Computer programming is super hard.
Busted: We make programming easy for even young children by making it fun!
Myth: Computer programming is boring – all that typing.
Busted: We introduce the world of programming through drag and drop coding.
Myth: Young kids won’t WANT to code.
Busted: We utilize children’s affinity for video games and art to motivate them to learn coding – they end up coding their own video games and artistic creations.
Myth: Not all kids are natural programmers.
Busted: Programming is just like math or art, anyone can learn it – even young children.
Myth: Coding isn’t for girls.
Busted: Some of the more talented coders we have encountered are female. A majority of our instructors are female. The industry is clamoring for female developers – leaving doors wide open for girls who can program.
