Cartoon Network is Helping Kids Learn Coding Again with Code for the Future 2.0

I remember that time when I was back in high school that I’ve been so into the computer classes most especially when we were taught how to code. And it seems like our friends at Cartoon Network with their Code the Future 2.0 event.

In partnership with SMILE Group, Cartoon Network is back with Code the Future 2.0 to re-introduce the world of code in a playful and engaging manner. Kids aged 8 to 10 in select Metro Manila schools will have the opportunity to learn basic coding with their favorite cartoon characters from OK K.O! Let’s Be Heroes, The Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, and We Bare Bears.

For this version of Code the Future, Cartoon Network and SMILE Group will go to 10 schools within Metro Manila that started last September until this month will teach coding and computer programming to young kids in a way that’s fun and easy to embrace through specially developed coding games and activities combining storytelling, physical play, teamwork, and problem solving.

With the help of programming tool Scratch, kids will be exposed to the fundamentals of programming and will get introduced to what learning how to code can lead to, like video sensing and controlling hardware devices.
