The AT&T Youth Code Project is Right Around the Corner!
The moment we have been waiting for is so close! The AT&T Youth Code Project is this Thursday, August 18! Over the past couple of weeks, we have explored how coding can be an integral part of our children’s lives. As kids “grow up with technology”, we should better equip them to become future problem solvers.
To recap, we first discussed the why of our event. We truly believe that kids simply deserve the opportunity to learn how to code. Since coding can be both technical and creative, it can be incredibly inspiring to see what kids can create when given the chance.
To those who were still not convinced, we shared a brief testimonial from a recent grad who wished she started to learn to code earlier. As a student who had only recently studied programming, she thought a workshop like the AT&T Youth Code Project was a perfect way to introduce kids to HTML/CSS. This student also found coding to be a great way to learn how to efficiently and effectively solve problems.
I went from panicking at new problems to realizing if solution A and B don’t work, there has to be a solution C. I can honestly say, squeezing in as many coding classes as possible has changed how I solve problems on a daily basis.
To tie things together, we finished our series by exploring how entrepreneurship and coding went hand in hand. We believe creators, like programmers, should at least have the opportunity for leadership and to demonstrate pure ownership. Coding, if utilized properly, can truly leverage an entrepreneur to become a successful self-starter.
We also would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers and our attendees! Without you and your (really) awesome kids, we wouldn’t be able to launch an initiative to teach CNY kids how to code. We are going to be a full crowd on Thursday and we are extremely excited to see everybody there! Here is everything you need to know about Thursday:
