5 Reasons your Kids Should try a Coding Camp this Summer

1.  There are now more computing devices than people

Your children are growing up in a world where they are outnumbered by computers! By learning to code, kids will be able to master technology, instead of being controlled by it.

2.  Coding teaches problem solving

Programmers (and engineers of all kinds) use several logical techniques to solve problems, including deductive reasoning and computational thinking. These techniques are universal and don’t change, even though technology that we use changes all the time.  It’s important for kids to learn those skills now.

3.  Modeling real world phenomena creates a better understanding of math and science

A big area of coding is in simulations. Kids learn concepts like gravity, velocity, acceleration, Cartesian coordinates, and electricity.  The list goes on.

4.  Creating video games is a good alternative to just playing them

Kids can often see the similarities between code that they’ve written, and the video game that they are playing.  Learning to code changes children’s perception of video games from purely an act of consumption, to one of inspiration and creativity.  

5.  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. There are incredible tools out there for kids to learn to create dramatic works, graphical art, music, and design in their coding projects.
