One thing that we know is that coding is and will be the biggest needed skill in a range of industries, with the 21st century already putting out a number of amazing technology advancements, we can only expect that the next few centuries to come will be donated by coders and those who are knowledgeable in technology.
The problem is that we don’t really teach kids how to complete these sort of tasks at school or at home, and as of yet no one has thought of a way to do so.
Well we say no one, the developers of a new crowdfunding project called Codie hope to do so.
Teaching children coding will be useful for the rest of their lives. Learning programming with Codie develops kids’ problem solving and critical thinking skills while unleashing their inner creativity. Kids become makers while building their programs with our intuitive application as creative and colorful as the children using it. We created Codie to provide our youngest and brightest generation the tool they need to acquire the basics of coding.
To put it into simple terms, Codie is a robot toy that links to an app that can be run from a smartphone, within this app users will have to use building blocks of code in order to get the toy to work and complete actions that the child sets.
Check out the video above for a quick look.
