It's no wonder that coding is more fashionable today than ever before. The ability to program is undoubtedly one of the most important skills for the current generation of children to have leading into their adult lives. In 2015, 7 million job openings required the ability to code in the US (Burning Glass) and it is known that the best way to learn is to start early. A coding camp is a great way to introduce the next generation to the most important skill of the future. While popular culture can often make coding seem a daunting and tricky skill, that is far from the truth. Programming is a skill which everyone can learn.
More Tech Campers 3D Printing NHS Face Shields
We keep hearing from more campers who have built 3D printers with us over the last few years how they're helping out their local hospitals and care staff. This one from Rémi who built a printer with us 3 years ago ...
"I’m making face shields for all our local medical staff. I’ve made 600 since the start of this pandemic with my Anet A8, which I built at one of your camps 3 years ago. All my stock went to Nice hospitals in France because I live over there. Thanks for all you guys did to teach me 3D printing skills!"
Well-done, Rémi - it's great to see young people like you using their skills to help others in this time of crisis. Great job!
