Most kids love video games… Unfortunately, most of the time, they’re playing games instead of doing things that could help their educational or professional development. But it doesn’t have to be that way! You can take your child’s love of gaming and use it to introduce them to a real-world skill set that could have them prepared for employment straight out of school.
Programming is and will continue to be one of the single most important – and fastest-growing – careers of the 21st Century. Whether your child decides to make video games, program business apps, or train the next generation of AI, this is a field with endless room for creative workers who can excel.
Programming is about more than just “making computers do things.” Coding is pure brain fuel. It teaches both linear and nonlinear thinking, encouraging creative problem solving but within a structured environment. Plus, programming is a team effort. Learning to code at a modern school means learning collaboration skills as well – and those are skills which will serve your child well no matter what the future holds.
Even if coding isn’t for them, a background in computer science is also great preparation for just about any STEM-related field!
