Learning coding from a young age

Following an article earlier in July, on Code for Change, with the feature of a little girl at a young age of 6 and coding since 4, we now see a pilot project launched by the IDA, introducing circuitry and robotics to pre-schoolers.

I really like that its a program that not only challenges the pre-schoolers to learn coding – but to use the coding to solve problems, developing their lateral thinking skills. Through trial and error, the children get to experiment with their ideas, develop their patience – making coding a much more fun experience for the children.

Well done IDA!
