Coding and STEAM for kids

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. STEAM blends those subjects to teach kids “21st-century skills,” or give them the tool to to succeed in the workplace of the future.

Coding is the art of telling a computer how to perform complex tasks. Coding is a skill that improves problem solving, creativity and communication. It helps kids better understand the world around them.
