5) Why is coding important?
Recent years, we have witnessed the integration of technological advancements into our daily lives, whether in finance, in shopping or even in eating! Coding is no longer a skill possessed by ‘computer geeks’ or those seeking employment in the ICT sector. Instead, the ability to code has become a necessity, to the extent that U.S President, Barack Obama urges the America to learn coding. Besides, many countries, such as Singapore, England, Spain etc have integrated Computer Science into the public school curriculum. As we progress towards a digitized world, it is essential to introduce the younger generation to coding since young in order to keep them at the forefront of technology.
