Why learn coding?

Jodan Kerk (student at Centre for Robotics Learning):


I feel that coding is useful and really cool. There are several common applications that require coding such as traffic light controlling and car reverse sensor. Our Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong is a coder too!

What is a good age to get kids started on coding?

Alan Yong (Tech Director, Nullspace Robotics)


We find that children below 8 years old do not have a fully developed capacity for logic thinking. More often than not, they will not be able to fully appreciate the logical steps behind programming. Needless to say, programming and mathematics are two sides of the same coin.
