A new Christmas workshop taking place in Bromley in December aims to turn love of digital technology into practical skills by teaching children to code.

I now look forward to giving local children the chance to learn skills that will give them a great advantage in life, besides being something that offers an alternative to traditional extracurricular activities. ”
“My main priority is to make sure that we increase the self-confidence of our students,” he added. “I think it is so important that our lessons are face to face but different from a classroom environment, ensuring that the children know they are there for fun instead of mimicking the feeling of their day. ‘standard school … Coding helps children develop critical thinking such as thinking outside the box and also how to approach problems in a certain way … The more I talk about it, the more I realize how much it could to be an amazing thing for the Bromley children. ”
