Coding for Kids
Every student at Mother Miracle will graduate with basic to advanced coding skills.
At Mother Miracle, we are committed to ensuring our students stand out when it comes to applying to jobs, and that means teaching them how to code. Coding is one of the most sought after skills across high-paying industries like information technology, healthcare, and finance, and this trend is projected to continue.
Our “Titan Coding Lab” (named by the students) has top notch equipment: 40 samsung 8GB RAM computers, 40 keys boards and mouse, 40 UPS with 4 battery backups and 4 electricity stabilizers, 1 Epson Smart Printer, and an LED Samsung 55″ smart TV with Wi-Fi HD. The room is painted with robots and spaceships which were designed and coded in Java Script language by the students.
150 students in grades 4-9 (ages 9-15) are attending coding classes on a daily basis. For the past three months, they have been teaching themselves java script coding language from a free online coding school name crunchzilla. They are also take coding classes, and have designed and coded a robot spaceship. They take diligent notes and create codes in their notebooks. With just three months of practice, not even the teachers know as much as they know! They are learning at their own pace and helping each other through the process. Our vision is for the students to start making money and be rewarded for their efforts creating unique images while they are learning the coding language! Their next project is coding Lord Ganesh and the best will be printed on paper and sold online on our website.
The job market has changed significantly over the last decade. Top employers like Apple, IBM, and Google are placing more emphasis on what you know, rather than how you learned it. This is especially true for vocations like coding and programming, which can be learned online and don’t require a 4-year college degree.
According to a 2016 report published by Burning Glass, a job market analytics firm, learning to code is one of the best skills you can acquire to secure a well-paying career. The report states:
- Coding Jobs Pay More: In the USA, jobs requiring coding skills pay $22,000 per year more than jobs that don’t. Half of the jobs that pay more than $57,000 a year, require coding skills from job applicants.
- Coding Jobs are in High-Demand: Coding jobs are growing faster than the job market, and are especially useful to Engineers, Scientists, Artists & Designers, Data Analysts, and Information Technology Workers.
