Let’s train our future talents from childhood

Today young talent are moulded all over the world from the age of six, thanks to the work of the MIT Media Lab, which launched Scratch, a visual programming language with building blocks for children.

Coding in a local language accelerates learning

A 2017 study of five countries and more than 15,000 Scratch users at the University of Washington by Benjamin Mako Hill; shows that novice users who code with their local language programming blocks and their localized environment in the main language of their home country demonstrate new programming concepts at a faster rate than users in the same countries with English interfaces.
