    What do coding classes teach children?

    As a common activity under STEAM, programming integrates technology with design. Children plan and design original games, animations, or even robots, before programming them to work. Kids gain critical thinking, problem solving, and analytical skills through this. Java, Python, Scratch, Swift, and Arduino are the programming languages most common in coding classes. 

    Beginner coding classes teach children basic coding concepts such as how code prints to a web page. As they progress, they learn concepts like variables, loops, and sequences. These skills are essential to complete high school or university-level coding projects in advanced classes. Some advanced programs ask children to complete entrance tests before enrollment in the class.

    Micro:bit is the hardware most commonly used in coding class now, compatible with young children’s cognitive and motor skills. Minecraft and Roblox modding is often completed with this hardware, allowing children to craft a personal gaming experience. Coding programs can be budget-friendly, some costing $30 to $50 per lesson. In fact, some are free! More advanced programs cost around $100 to $600 depending on the duration and content of the program.

    More about advanced coding classes

    In advanced coding classes, children program a variety of projects to challenge their math, science, and design skills. Projects in animation, game design, electronics, and app development offer kids a chance to expand their programming repertoire.

    Some advanced classes include programming competitions within their curriculum. In these competitions, children showcase their talents in coding to receive constructive feedback and meet professionals in computer science. As you notice in your research, all coding lessons are coeducational. Being that programming is a male-dominated profession, lessons especially welcome young women of all backgrounds,  encouraging them to pursue careers in computer science.

    Why enroll in coding classes?

    Coding classes beckon children to a future in technology and computer science. Here are some benefits of enrolling in coding classes:

    • Improve math skills. Programming is often mathematically intensive. Strategic thinking and problem-solving are skills learned in programming classes that help kids improve in math and see its practical application. 
    • Future career pathways are created in class. Beginner programmers learn fundamental coding skills at a young age to inspire curiosity later. Intermediate and advanced coders build professional-level projects that contribute to future career success.
    • Work with top technology companies. Children interested in web or app development will find coding classes associated with big companies like Apple or Google above. Kids  gain experience with these companies’ systems, which looks great on a resume.
    • Meet other budding programmers with similar interests and skills in class. Children make many new friends in these programs.
