Prepare Your Child for the Future: 5 Reasons Your Child Should Learn to Code
November 7, 2016Posted by pamela |
Marin Mommies presents a sponsored shout-out from MV Code Club, who offer five reasons why kids should learn to code.
- There are now more computing devices than people
By learning to code, they will be able to master technology, instead of being controlled by it.
- Coding teaches problem solving
Programmers use several logical techniques to solve problems. These techniques are universal and don’t change, even though technology that we use changes all the time.
- Modeling real world phenomena creates a better understanding of math and science
- Creating video games is a good alternative to just playing them
Learning to code changes children’s perception of video games from purely an act of consumption, to one of inspiration and creativity.
- Coding offers a new creative and artistic outlet
You may have heard of STEM - but have you heard of STEAM? STEAM adds Art and Design to the equation.
MVCode is a local after-school program that teaches 1st–10th graders to code. MVCoders use creativity, collaboration, and computational logic while having fun. Kids learn skills to help prepare them for the future - programming, problem solving, math, physics, art and music.
