What parents are saying

Would my child enjoy coding?

Coding is not about playing video games, it's about creating and problem solving. Does your child enjoy drawing or building with legos? Are they mischievous? Do they like discovering short-cuts? Do they have an entrepreneurial spirit? Do they have big dreams? These are all tell-tales that your child might benefit from learning to code.
