SAS Codesnaps – One robot. One tablet. A classroom full of coders.

What skill is becoming increasingly valuable and can prepare children for the future?

In today’s digital world, coding is an essential skill. It helps develop a range of essential skills, such as critical thinking. Which in turn helps children  think logically and methodically, and  develop computational thinking and problem-solving skills. They learn how to break down problems into smaller parts, analyse them, and develop solutions. Coding involves trial and error, which encourages children to persist in finding solutions to problems, and creativity – to express themselves and explore new ideas.

By learning to code at a young age, children are also better prepared for future roles, such  as:

  • Business Superstars
  • Creative Geniuses
  • Tech Wiz
  • Marketing Guru
