All this week around 7:45 am I am giving away tickets to Girls Fest 2018 which will be held on October 6th at Santa Clara University. Apple is going to be at Girls Fest offering a workshop called "Everyone Can Code" for the girls going. So for parents like myself who great up in the MTV generation, I wanted to break down what exactly is coding and why kids should learn to code.
Coding is basically telling a computer, an app, a phone, a website what you want it to do. Experts recommend kids learn it today because our whole world is based on computers so it helps them learn around the world around them.
Coding teaches kids how to use math in real-world situations.
Coding is supposed to be fun. There's even a 'Frozen: Learn to Code' game!
