Summer is just around the corner! Do you want your child to have an exciting summer learning experience that keeps them engaged, focused and out of trouble?

In the past four decades, several studies have assessed the effect of teaching kids to code. In each case, findings show that it is extremely beneficial to children, regardless of their career path later on in life. Understanding computers and learning the basics of coding helps children to develop an appreciation of how things work. It also teaches them how software engineers use math in order to solve problems in a logical and creative way. 

CodeSpark is a great way for your kids to learn to code this summer. While programming is logic-based, it’s also an extremely creative activity. Not only is this program carefully designed to boost engagement in young girls to further close the gender gap in STEM, their affordable subscription program helps them fund and integrate computer science in low-income schools around the world.

The ability to solve problems is a trait that is useful in life in general. The earlier kids are exposed to programming, the less likely they are to demonstrate gendered stereotypes about STEM careers. We all want our children to become excellent problem solvers so that they can overcome any adversity they face.
