Coding or programming gives a different perspective on problem-solving and helps develop important skills like creativity, problem-solving, logic, designing, perseverance and communication.
Programming contests make you more disciplined, swift and focused. During the competition, a student must solve problems in a stressful situation and within a time limit to win. It also provides a competitive advantage when applying to colleges, internships, and jobs. While programming is logic-based, it’s also an extremely creative activity. Programming promotes logical thinking and teaches children how to tackle complex problems by breaking them down into smaller parts that are easier to manage and solve. By learning to code students learn to maximize their creativity and learn how to come up with their own ideas and create something new like apps, video games, websites making it fun and interesting.
