Keep Your Kids Learning this Summer with Let's Start Coding!
Summer is upon us- long days, outdoor activities, and.... school's out! Of course kids should have fun over their summer break, but wouldn't it be great if they could keep learning, or gain a new skill while they have fun?
If you're a parent paying attention to the trends in education and even the broader economy, you know that technology will play a vital role in your kids' future. While it's easy to make broad predictions about what that role may be - automating jobs, using huge troves of data to make decisions, or jet packs to make lunch break more entertaining - we know this: a foundational understanding of technology will be even more critical than it is today.
That's where Let's Start Coding comes in. It's our mission to bring real, typed computer coding fundamentals to beginners in a fun, engaging way. Kids can learn, at their own pace, the basics of computer coding: variables, loops, functions, statements, comparators, and syntax. Importantly, they'll have fun doing it, building gadgets and handheld games they can show off and share. Watch the video below for how simple it is.
You don't have to take our word for it alone, though. Parents, teachers, bloggers, and professionals have all weighed in on Let's Start Coding kits. See what some of them have to say:
