Why Computer Science for Children?
As per Mckinsey Global Research Institute’s and Brookings Institute’s report, the majority of the jobs would be automated by 2030. Hence there is a crucial need to prepare our current generation for the future tech market. No matter what career they choose, every role will inevitably require technical skills. Thus, teaching Computer Science to kids at their initial stages would help them to become creators versus consumers of technology. Also, according to a research study conducted by George Land and Beth Jarman, the children of age group 5-8 have the highest creativity skills that start decreasing in adults. Coding activities would help in channelizing their brains towards creative and innovative ways and would also help in enhancing their analytical, logical, and problem solving skills.
