Coding is what makes technology work. Your computer, cellphone, websites, car display systems, electric vacuum cleaner - they're all made by coding! Learning to code means your young person will learn to write the languages that technology reads.
Your young person will be able to not only passively consume technology, but understand how to control it so they can be an active part of the digital age.

In our robotics & computer hardware lesson each term students can choose to build robots, take apart a computer or program robots!
The 3 highest median salaries for jobs advertised on TradeMe in 2017 were all coding related (according to careers.govt.nz). There is both currently and projected to continue being a massive shortage in skilled coders.
All of my friends who have younger siblings...my number one piece of advice is: You should learn how to program.
