We understand that some parents may feel that with recent developments in AI (Artificial Intelligence), programming skills may not be as essential for their children. However, this is not the case! Here are a few reasons why learning to program is still crucial:

1.    Foundation for the Future: Programming is a fundamental skill that underpins many of the technologies and systems we use daily. Understanding the basics of coding helps children develop critical thinking, problem-solving skills, and creativity, which are essential in any field.

2.    AI Needs Programmers: While AI can automate many tasks, it still requires skilled professionals to develop, maintain, and improve these systems. Programmers and IT professionals are needed to create, manage, and advance AI technologies.

3.    Versatile Skill Set: Programming knowledge opens up numerous career opportunities across various industries, from tech to healthcare, finance, entertainment, and more. It’s a versatile skill that can give your child a competitive edge in the job market.

4.    Empowerment and Control: Knowing how to program allows individuals to understand and control the technology they use. It empowers them to create their own applications, solve problems efficiently, and innovate.

Our summer camp offers a variety of weeks to choose from, and we highly encourage you to sign up as soon as possible to secure your preferred dates. Early registration not only ensures your child gets a spot but also makes it easier for their friends to join them for an unforgettable summer experience.
