Kids and Coding

Why should my child learn how to code?

Coding is a valuable skill to learn as it teaches not only how to make programs but how to collaborate with others, persevere, be detail oriented, problem solve and much more! Even if your child doesn’t pursue fields like computer science, coding teaches invaluable skills that can serve them for the rest of his or her life.

Are there jobs in technology?

As technology grows, the need for specialized skills increases. For example, in the state of Utah, there are more technology jobs available than there are employees to fill them.1 Programmers, engineers, and designers are always in demand (and are often known to receive rather handsome paychecks, we might add.)2,3,4 In technology, there will always be work!

Is my child too young to learn to code?

In many ways coding is like a spoken language and a new way of thinking. So the earlier a person starts, the more likely the skills of programming will be solidified and honed. It is never too early to code!
