EMPOWERING KIDS TO BECOME MAKERS

What is Coding?

Coding (sometimes called programming), in the simplest of terms, is telling a computer what you want it to do via step-by-step instructions.

Why is coding important?

Coding is everywhere. From your favourite smartphone app to your microwave oven, coding is what makes these things work. It’s what powers our digital world.
