If you type ‘what is coding?’ into Google, you’ll find thousands of options. We know because we’ve tried it. It’s funny that with so many options, the answer is pretty much the same. Coding is the process or activity of writing computer programs…
Jam Coding has been delivering computing workshops to children for over 7 years now, and whilst that definition is correct, ours is slightly different.
Coding is having the confidence to try something different and new.
It’s a test of resilience.
It’s critical thinking.
It’s the ability to process information and think like a computer…
To notice patterns and understand what they mean.
In our digital world, coding is a door to job opportunities.
It’s communication. It’s storytelling in a universal language.
Coding is complexity.
It’s a workout for the mind and memory that requires determination, focus and logic.
It’s learning new skills: typing, writing, maths…
It’s finding the solution to a problem or a loop hole to get around it.
It’s a celebration of collaboration and creativity.
Coding is fun!
To us, coding is so much more than just writing computer programs. It’s a series of skills that children will benefit from in every aspect of life. Yet, only an estimated 0.5% of the world’s population has mastered it.
At Jam Coding, we understand just how important these skills will be to employers in the future job market, and see it as our duty to instil them into children from a young age. Our workshops are designed to do just that.
