At Mandarin Readers, we believe in integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Mathematics learning through resources that also offer open-ended creative play! Code is the 21st century literacy and the need for people to speak the ABC of Programming is imminent. Our world is increasingly run by software and we need more diversity in the people who are building it.
More importantly, writing software is about expression, creativity - and practical application. Our kids should learn to bend, join, break and combine code in a way it wasn't designed to. Just as they would with crayons and paper or wood and tools. We believe there's plenty to learn in programming logic and culture before showing children a single screen.
