Kids today are not learning how to program computers…the right way.

We want to change that!

Based in Mount Pleasant, SC, Coding Kids Club is an organization of parents, engineers, and technologist who work with kids exposing them to the wonders of programming. And the kids love it.

Many of us grew up tinkering with computers, be it an Apple IIe, Atari 800, Commodore, TRS-80, Sinclair, or one of the many build at home kits. We got our hands dirty with line coding, and it was fun. For many it was an amazingly useful hobby. It infused a generation of kids with the curiosity and a foundation in math and logic that helped produce a generation of creators and launched the technology revolution.

But there’s a downside to all this wonder and today’s easy to use intuitive tools. We have gotten so good that we have hidden the “wizard behind the curtain” that makes all this stuff work. Good old fashion line coding. Kids do not get exposed to line coding anymore. And that’s a problem. It’s a problem because they are losing out on developing their creative side while building out their math, collaboration and logic skills. As a result we have a gap where today’s youngsters are not prepared to pursue many exciting and rewarding technology careers.

We have produced a generation of young adults who can use these modern tools but do not know how to create them. That is what we want to help change in our own little way. Red Stone Circuits is not an adequate substitute for learning line level coding.
