Learning to program computers is an important skill to develop since we are living in a digital world. Learning to code doesn't mean you have to be a computer programmer. Learning how to code will strengthen problem solving skills and logical thinking, which supports key academic subjects such as science, maths and technology. As the world gets more digitised, so does the demand for coding talent.
