Coding is the art of telling a computer what to do, in a unique and disciplined manner. We at Code Club 254 use Python and Scratch to teach young minds this beautiful art.
Coding and Chess Unite teach two programming languages in our sessions;
Python is a multi-paradigm, general-purpose, interpreted, high-level programming language that allows programmers to use different programming styles to create simple or complex programs, get quicker results and write code almost as if speaking in a human language. Python is used to develop desktop GUI applications, websites and web applications.
Scratch is a block based visual programming language developed to help simplify the process of creating and programming animations, games, music, interactive stories and more.
Here are some important benefits of playing chess which we hope will compel parents to encourage their children to play:
• Unlocks Creativity
• Sparks Curiosity
• Computational Thinking
Unlike adults, most children have creative minds that enable them to think outside the box. The endless searching for solutions and variations of coding can motivate them to use their creative minds to the maximum. Children who quickly learn to code can see the connection between coding and storytelling. Both coding and storytelling normally follow a similar pattern (beginning, middle, and end). This creative inspiration can, therefore, help them in writing and public speaking.
Creative thinking begins with an inquisitive mind. When children are curious, they experiment, generate ideas and assumptions, make mistakes, and learn. With Coding, kids become more curious with every command, expression, method, and as they bring their creations to life.
When children learn how to write code, they not only develop cognitive skills but also learn the problem-solving process that’s similar to a computer. This process involves using pattern recognition to present the problems in different ways while logically breaking them down into parts and creating the steps needed to solve them. Apart from coding, computational thinking can also be used in other situations for instance, scientists handle problems by coming up with a hypothesis before testing them one by one. Likewise,car mechanics diagnose car issues by replacing one part at a time so as to know where the problem is. In coding, computer programmers will figure out the bugs by generating a hypothesis and tweaking the codes to test which one can solve the problem.
In coding or programming, children learn how to handle problems and anticipate any errors. Knowing how to write the correct codes can help prevent an entire program from crashing. More so, if what they are creating is not coming out well they tend to persist. They are also compelled to study what’s not working, why it’s not working and what can be done to ensure that it works well. Coding hasn’t become popular by a mere accident. It’s been noted that knowing how to code is very important especially for the young generation. As Bill Gates said, learning to write programs not only helps you think better but also stretches your mind.
Some characteristics that children develop as they learn coding.
• Resilience
• Collaboration
• Planning

In order to compete in the current global economy, students need to have a comprehensive skill set that includes technology. In fact, in the future not knowing how to code will only be comparable to not knowing how to read. Most jobs will require that you have basic computer skills. Even clothing boutiques and restaurants currently need some form of computer knowledge. Those who specialize in coding will, therefore, earn a lot of returns (read money) and opportunities for those who know how to code will definitely rise in future.
