For many adults, let alone children, coding is a vague & foreign concept. The best way for anyone to fully grasp it is to get their hands dirty. Coding4Kids, an initiative of the National Youth Service in collaboration with the CodeClub Digital Luxembourg, gives each child a gateway to first-hand programming experiences.
An introduction to programming
During these workshops taking place in daycare-centers throughout the country, they learn about coding: its potential, how to create through coding & how to use related tools. These first impressions are crucial, so organizers make sure that the course is fun, engaging & separate from traditional school programs. Code Clubs exist throughout the country, teaching residents in different communes how to code. By bringing this resource to communities beyond the capital, Code Club is diversifying the digital economy.
