Why is programming important for kids & teens?

Computer Science is the most rapidly growing STEM field. According to co-founder Hadi Partovi, “Although only 10 percent of schools teach computer science, even one hour of exposure can be enough to change a student’s life, as it did mine. In the 21st century, this isn’t just a course you study to get a job in software—it’s important to learn even if you want to be a nurse, a journalist, an accountant, a lawyer, or even a president.”

There are plenty of reasons why your child should learn to code, and so we wholeheartedly believe programming to be a vital skill for today’s youth. So do Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg,, and other notable figures. Watch the video that has garnered over 14 million views since its release.
