Why Learn Coding?

“Everybody in the country should learn to program a computer , because it teaches you how to think." – Steve Jobs
Technology is weaved into the fabric of our society, from medicine to space it is everywhere. With the exposure to technology children need to be made aware of the opportunities and use them to grow as better humans. Through this program children build on how to logically break down a problem through algorithms, analyse a code to make efficient solutions. They use their creativity to think outside the box and come up with application programs for the ideas and problems that they see around them,

Program Description

You would have picked up a device, just a made a few clicks,pressed a few buttons and watched a video or listened to a song and maybe played a game. If you have ever wondered how you can explore the world through a device then it’s time to create something of your own to share with the world. Throughout this course you will explore the problem solving process and create algorithms and flowcharts to logically solve a problem. You will be introduced to different ways to give instructions to a computer and use these instruction to identify and create your own project at the end of the program.

Program Objectives

  • Learn to comprehend and describe steps to any process.
  • Describe a process to build something from scratch.
  • Understand the various components of a flowchart
