Want your children to unleash their creativity and have a brighter future? Teach them how to code! Learning programming empowers kids and gives them the tools necessary to express themselves in cool ways! Your children would love controlling robots and machines and getting a computer to solve complicated problems. After all, the ability to communicate with machines is probably the closest thing to superpowers that can be taught.
Learning programming is as easy as learning a language, and like learning, it’s best done young and early. Public school first graders in Estonia are learning to code. Estonia also happens to be the birthplace of Skype and the first European country with DSL in every school. Programming allows children to transition from simply interacting with technology to creating technology and expressing oneself in new ways.
We need programmers! Over the next 10 years, programming will be one of the fastest growing occupations. It’s expected that there will be one million empty programming jobs. It’s shocking then that only one out of every 10 schools currently teach computer science.
