Coding for Kids and Teens

If you've ever visited a website or played a game using an app on a phone or tablet, you have used something that was created using code. When someone codes, they create instructions for a computer to follow, and this makes it possible for us to play computer games, use apps, browse the web, and more. Learning to code allows someone endless opportunities, including creating their own games and even their own websites!
