Posted on 10/06/2016

Kids are growing up in a much different world than their parents.  Computers, cellphones, and all kinds of digital devices are part of their daily lives.  It's one thing to know how to use these gadgets.  It's quite another to understand the logic behind them.

Children love to play games.  Teachers are using a simple computer game to teach students coding. The game is similar to Angry Birds.  It teaches students the concept of problem solving.  The higher the level, the harder the game becomes.

These skills will give students the opportunity to create the next must have app or computer game.  We can't wait to see how they invent the future.
