Gone are the days of learning technology just out of curiosity and interest. Basic programming has become a necessity in today’s world. From automated metro trains to robotic-teaching assistants, programming is transforming every aspect of our lives.

The present generation kids will become future innovators, software developers and scientists, so it is essential for them to learn this skill in order to lead this movement.

Recognizing the potential of coding, Sandooq Al Watan, a national initiative to support research projects in line with the UAE’s vision to diversify beyond oil, has launched Emirati Coder programme. By 2020, the programme aims to teach 2,500 children the basics of coding so as to create a pool of talent that will be capable to meet the challenges of the future labour market.

Why children need to learn coding?

Learning coding develops various skills in a child at an early age, such as creativity, problem-solving, strategic planning, communication, persistence, competitiveness, collaboration, creativity and understanding of the world around them. Children benefit from learning coding whether they professionalize it or not.
