The Best Coding Programs For Kids + Special Discount Code!

Coding. It's the way of the future, friends. Whether you're a tech aficionado or a novice, knowing how to program and navigate code is becoming all-the-more necessary these days; especially for our children. With all of the advancements in the tech world, job requirements are rapidly changing. Teaching your kids to code NOW, will definitely help them gain an upper hand in school, and in years to come in the job marketplace.

Coding is something that my oldest son really enjoys. He was introduced to Scratch in school, and he ran with it! It's become a bit more than a hobby at this point; he absolutely loves to code! Every child should start with Scratch (an MIT based online coding program that is FREE for kids). This program allows children to navigate simple coding concepts in a fun relatable way through animation and design. As children get a little older, teaching more advanced concepts in web development using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, will be made easier when they've gleaned some of the fundamental basics with Scratch.

Generation Code is paving the way for kids that have an interest in computer coding and robotics, with their summer camps and year-round kids classes/programs. So, if you're in the NYC area (or in another select area of the country where they offer camps and classes ), you should definitely consider sending your kids for a week (or more!) this summer.
