PROGRAM OR BE PROGRAMMED
Yesterday my younger sons attended their very first coding class! I didn’t know what to expect from these young guys, but they did great! The look on each of their faces was thanks enough.
I didn’t learn it until after college. Even thing, I past it over and ran to the cut and paste – ins website apps.
The reason I introduced them to it is not just because a girlfriend invited us,to this FREE series of classes but because I wanted the middle aged boys to improve their problem solving skills. Having children that “THINK” is a BIG thing for me. I think in life you are either a consumer- programmed or a producer……. the programmer. And tell me, what’s wrong with having a Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak,or a Steve Jobs in our large family?
I hear that some countries, including England, have begun to add coding to their national school curriculum, teaching children as young as 5 how to code. It’s urged to expose them to it as an additional language.
Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, and this website – they’re all made with code. (CODING EXPLAINED For BEGINNERS)
What Charlotte elementary school teaches coding??? These are the days that I am so grateful to have the opportunity to teach outside of the box. They are learning real skills! These skills include hand-crafting their own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, they will be able to understand the technology shaping their world.

Here are a few more impressive sites on CODING
We teach children ages preschool through middle school. We just began teaching coding classes using CODE.org, Khan Academy, and Tynker.org. We have curriculum for a beginner and advanced beginner class in place, and are teaching a number of camps this summer.
We help organize coding clubs and high school hackathons for inner-city students
