About the Programme

'Think like a coder' sessions are specially designed to develop computational thinking skills in preschool children (age 3-6). These are for absolute beginners.

Computational thinking is the process of breaking down a problem into simple enough steps that even a computer would understand.

Computational Thinking is a life skill essential for survival in the 21st century. It lays the foundation of coding. Just like it is important for kids to learn English, Math and Science even though they may not all become writers, mathematicians or scientists, the kids born in this millennium need baseline coding competencies to stay relevant. It develops critical thinking and creativity as children learn new ways to solve a problem. Computational thinkers are problem solvers and innovators.
