If you and your child are new to coding it can be confusing knowing where to start. From C++ to Python the coding languages available today are numerous. They are called languages for a reason. Learning to code is like learning a new language. It can be difficult and challenging at first, but don’t worry we’ve got your back!
For new coders the best place to start is Scratch. Scratch is a block based visual programming language developed by MIT for students up to 16 years of age. Blocks take the place of manually typed code. It allows students to code by dragging, dropping, and connecting sequences of blocks to create their code. Scratch makes learning to code easy and fun. It has tools for creating games, art, simulations, interactive stories, and more. Plus, it has its own paint editor and sound editor built-in.
Give your child the edge that will prepare them for a 21st Century career!
