What exactly is coding? Coding is what makes it possible for us to create computer software, apps and websites. Your browser, your OS, the apps on your phone, Facebook, websites you browse – they’re all made with code. Don’t panic. As daunting as that may seem, coding isn’t just for rocket scientists. It’s also proven to help with problem-solving, critical thinking, creativity and imagination, to name but a few coding benefits.
Anyone can code, even children. Simple, fun and intriguing coding tasks are easily accessible, and Learning Resources has an educational toys range specifically designed for children with coding in mind.

By helping children learn the fundamentals of coding from an early age, you’re giving them valuable experience that will spur them to on to learn more, as well as the knowledge to help strive in the ever-evolving world around them as they prepare for their future careers.
