Why should my child learn to code?


Every child should have access to computer science education with special focus on code. Whether the child wants to become a computer engineer, doctor, civil servant, musician or even an artist, technology will impact all professions of the future. Children in school today will graduate from college in 5 to 15 years and the world will be a very different place then. Learning to code will prepare him for that future. Code also helps the child inculcate many life skills such as

  1. Logical thinking
