Teaching children how to code
Coding teaches children to be creative and helps them in understanding IT, both of which can greatly help them in their development. Moreover, such knowledge will help The Netherlands in being competitive and being a knowledge economy.
The Netherlands is one of the few countries in the European Union that lacks a nationwide coding program. CodeCombat is an initiative by two Leiden University students, aimed at teaching primary school children how to code. For its expertise in coding, CodeCombat asked Landscape to join the initiative.
Landscape and CodeCombat are now jointly operationalising the initative by composing several teaching modules and by contacting governments and primary schools. With its extensive coding knowledge, Landscape is actively contributing to making CodeCombat a success.
