Careers of the future are not clearly predictable like they were in the past. Exposing kids early to technology, especially coding or programming can set them at an advantage over their peers. Kids who are exposed to coding at an early age tend to “think out of the box” and thus perform better at STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics).
We provide coding lessons to kids and adults alike. From weekly and weekend classes, to holiday programmes and boot-camps. We are always looking for tutors to join us in providing superlative lessons to deserving kids.
With over 22 million users, Scratch is the best introductory programming language, ideal for those under 10 years. Created by MIT Media Labs, Scratch is not exclusively for creating games because the provided visuals help programmers to create animated stories, informational texts, etc. Kids who code in Scratch improve on their problem-solving skills, i.e. creative, mathematical and logical abilities and are hence able to excel in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics).
Python is a widely used programming or coding language. Its advantage over other high-level languages stems from the fact that it has been designed to be easy and fun to use. This is why we chose it for our whizzkids. Created by Guido van Rossum in 1991, Python’s core philosophy is: ● Beautiful is better than ugly ● Explicit is better than implicit ● Simple is better than complex ● Complex is better than complicated ● Readability counts
Coding or programming requires critical problem solving skills. To program any machine or device (computer, tablet, phone, robot, vehicle fuel system, etc.) requires above average thinking and analytical capabilities. Kids that are exposed to coding at an early age acquire above average problem solving skills, which they carry into adulthood, giving them the edge over others.
“Thinking out of the box” requires one to conceptualise and present abstract and difficult situations and challenges in an easy to understand manner. This capability requires a shift in the mindset and only children can learn new concepts such as languages and ways of doing things with ease. Also, learning early would make it for them to finish their tertiary studies at record time without much hassles.
Career opportunities within STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) are increasing assuring those with these crucial skills better employment prospects. Africa is still trying to play catch-up with the rest of the world regarding adoption and implementation of STEM. Thus, a lot of opportunities exist and the best way to ensure this is to provide kids with the right skills.
