As the holidays approach and you begin your shopping, you may be stumped as to what to give your children this year. While the “hot toy” of the season may be tempting, we all know it will be forgotten in a few weeks and then what?
Coding classes for kids are a great way to either introduce the skill or foster the interest they’ve already created. When you give the gift of coding and other STEM classes, you’re giving a gift that will last a lifetime.Coding classes for kids are a great way to either introduce the skill or foster the interest they’ve already created.

Why are coding classes the gift that keeps on giving?
They teach problem-solving and real-life skills. In order for a computer code to work successfully, there will likely be a lot of trial and error. This teaches kids how to recognize a problem and how to solve it. The process of problem-solving is something they will carry with them throughout their lives.
Learning how to code at a young age will also give children the ability to keep up with the competition. In England, coding classes are now a mandatory part of the curriculum. In China, children are learning how to code at a young age to help them gain skills they’ll use now and in the future. Giving the gift of coding will help kids expand on their interest in coding as well as help them to get on the same playing field as their peers in other parts of the world.
Coding classes can also introduce children to others who share the same interests. These classes can improve their social skills as they learn how to ask for help and work together to develop successful codes.
At MakerKids we not only provide robotics, coding classes and camps for kids, but we also teach Minecraft classes to help students learn more about how the game works and how to take it to the next level. In our coding classes, kids learn everything they need to know to develop their own game. From storyboarding to animation, kids will develop skills that will last them a lifetime.
Forget the long lines this holiday season and give the gift that keeps on giving. Call MakerKids at 877-269-3498 for more information on the classes and camps we offer.
