Why learn coding


Computational Thinking

Learning coding will help your child develop problem solving and computational thinking skills that allows kids to grasp concepts like algorithms, recursion and heuristics — even if they don’t understand the terms, they’ll learn the basic concepts.

Part of Curriculum

Coding is a part of the K-12 curriculum in BC.

It's becoming a mandatory in many countries, states and provinces.

Coding helps children with Math skills and improves writing academic performance.

Professional Success

It's a great career path. The IT industry is in constant need of new workers, and it’s not only coders or computer science majors — it needs graphic designers, software developers, and many more.

It's a well-paid job. For instance, a software engineer in British Columbia can make earn up to $69/hour. (Source: Job Bank Canada)

FAQ


Do I have to stay with a child during the class?

No. There's a Marine Gateway with many stores and restaurants to keep the parents busy during the sessions.



What should I bring to a class?

Please bring the following to every session:

  • Required: an iPad / Androing tablet / a laptop
  • Optional: an iPhone or Android phone for VR experience (we provide Wi-Fi connection and VR headset)
  • Optional: a water bottle and a snack for a short break in the middle


Is Virtual Reality safe for kids? How much time will my child be wearing a headset?

The duration of wearing a VR headset is normally less than 5 minutes within each session. Children wear a headset to look at the world they created on a computer.

One of the biggest concerns is the impact VR tech could have on kids' eyes. Parents have long told children that staring at a screen will make their eyes go square, but the American Academy of Ophthalmology says there is no evidence that long exposure to screens can cause permanent damage.



Are you playing MineCraft with children during the lesson?

No, we never play MineCraft game. We're using MineCraft ideas, concepts and characters to engage students and help them grasp programing. MineCraft is great because as well as coding it's about building things.
