Our lives are surrounded by computers. They run our cars, washing machines and even our door bells now.
All of them can only do their job because of the program, or code written for them.
Many technical jobs in the future will require some basic coding skills to program the micro-computers that will be used.
MIT's Scratch program may not represent the type of coding used in the real world but it allows children to see in an easy graphical form how coding works. It also allows them to learn the correct processes for composing code.
You can use the program directly online, or there is a downloadable desktop version.
