Frequently asked questions

Is coding for kids good?

We're living during a high-tech revolution, witnessing life-changing advancements in medicine, environmental conservation, and much more.

As kids and teens learn to code, they also build essential skills like critical thinking, logic, and problem-solving. They learn to logically sequence events, create playable games, tell good stories, and model real situations.
