“I think everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer — because it teaches you how to think.” – Steve Jobs

Programming is becoming an essential skill in nearly every modern industry. In fact, it’s predicted that by 2020 there will be 1,000,000 more computer science jobs than computer science students. Wow!

But more than any of that, when taught correctly, programming can be a whole heap of fun! Learning to code is an amazing, practical and hugely rewarding hobby and skill for kids of all ages.

In this jam-packed 1 hour course, we focus on the tools, techniques and ideas you can use to inspire fun and creativity in programming. With an emphasis on applications, the course steers away from code syntax or the conventions of any specific language and keeps the focus on making coding fun. In fact you won’t need any background or knowledge in programming at all.

Covering games, exercises, apps and more, the course is divided into four distinct sections to help guide you from introducing your kids to code, all the way to advancing them into more complex programming:

  1. Preparation
  2. Before the Code
  3. Where to Start
  4. Next Steps

So if your kids, class or school are excited about using technology to change the world, this course will give you everything you need to provide a practical and fun foundation for your kids to fall in love with coding.
