What do Steve Jobs, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have in common in their educational backgrounds? They all had exposure to technology as kids.
Studies show that kids decide as early as ages 7-12 whether they will continue to consider careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) or if they will write it off entirely. The key is a positive exposure to STEM.
85% of the jobs that will exist in 2030 haven’t been invented yet (Dell). By learning coding, kids will be prepared for anything and will become the innovators, inventors and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
Coding, Minecraft and robotics are also very fun for kids, and a great opportunity for them to learn core technical and social-emotional skills along the way. Kids have so much fun they don’t realize how much they are learning!
