Myths & Benefits of Coding

Since technology has both its pros and cons, some parents are wary of involving their children at a young age in such a technologically advanced subject. With all the benefits that coding offers, there comes myths about its downsides, but let’s take a quick look at the myths and benefits.

Myths of Coding

1. Too Much Screen Time:

While it’s true that screen time should be cause of concern, coding doesn’t have to be done only on a computer. The real essence of computer science comes down to problem-solving, so it’s possible to learn coding with pen and paper and share ideas before having to get behind a screen.

2. You Have to Be Good at Math:

Math and coding are interconnected, but it doesn’t mean that a child has to be a mathematician to learn to code. In fact, there are more words than numbers in coding, and it’s always possible to have resources available for when the math poses a challenge.

3. Only One Coding Language is Best:

Each coding language serves a different purpose. While Python and JavaScript are more flexible languages in terms of accessibility to learn on a web browser, it doesn’t make them better than another language. That’s why it’s also useful to focus on coding concepts like logic and problem-solving to teach the fundamentals behind the languages first.

1. Teaches Patience:

Like learning a new language, coding teaches patience. More often than not, coding takes time and while it may first seem difficult, it becomes easier with practice and teaches the value of resilience and overcoming hurdles to achieve greatness.

2. Fosters Creativity:

Coding opens the doors to so many possibilities, like game-building, application construction, website design, to name a few. With the basics of coding, children have the ability to choose their interests and create something out of nothing.

3. Problem-Solving Skills:

With coding, kids learn how to see the big picture and break it apart into smaller problems to find the root of the problem. Since there is typically more than one way to solve a problem, coding teaches the methods by which to assess challenges and solve them.

With sequential programming, students will have to use logic to instruct their robots to complete certain missions in a stepwise manner. A “simple” problem such as climbing a flight of stairs involves many different components that have to fit together into a cohesive solution. Change one aspect of the robot and you will have to consider the implications on the entire solution.

Doing robotics does not mean that you will become an engineer, but doing robotics means that you ought to be a very good problem solver. Learning robotics provides a safe space for children to be comfortable with making mistakes and in the process become confident problem solvers.


In the coming years, professions will be shaped by robotics and coding.

This blog summarizes the relevance of Robotics and Coding, as well as techniques for teaching and preparing children for these futuristic technologies that have the potential to transform life as we know it. 

So, rather than waiting any longer, let us begin inspiring children to explore these technologies and discover their hidden talents and skills.

With the world moving at such a breakneck pace, BrightChamps recognized the need to introduce key life/future skills to children to keep them ahead of the game. 

With a mission to bridge the gap left by traditional education, we are bringing key future skills through specially designed courses on coding, robotics and financial literacy taught by some of the world’s best minds from top-tier institutes such as IITs and IIMs.

Parent involvement in education plays a crucial role in a child’s academic success. When parents actively participate in their child’s education, it creates a supportive and conducive learning environment. 

This involvement fosters better communication between parents, teachers, and students, leading to improved academic performance, higher self-esteem, and enhanced overall development. By understanding the significance of parent involvement, we can empower students to reach their full potential and ensure their educational journey is a shared responsibility.

In conclusion, active parental involvement in a child’s education has a profound and enduring influence. Encouraging parents to engage in their child’s learning journey can foster a supportive environment, enhance academic performance, and shape their future success. Let’s strive together to empower our children by actively participating in their education.

To begin teaching children about coding or robotics, it is best to first expose them to these disciplines and pique their curiosity by describing how much fun they may have. 

They can make games, apps, robots, websites, animations, and a multitude of other things. 

  •  Introduce them to toys 


Depending on their age, you can begin by introducing them to toys such as Mechanix or Legos, which will introduce the children to the creation and design of the toys, which will enhance their observational, reasoning, logical, and creative skills, paving the way for further exploration into robotics and coding.

  • Introduce them to relevant media/ resources 


There are numerous resources available, whether online or offline: There are various YouTube videos, online communities, and groups dedicated to coding and robotics for children. 

Offline, you can refer to various magazines and books with pictures to inspire children to pursue robotics or coding. 

  • Try DIY (Do-It-Yourself) projects 

Involving children and teenagers in various DIY projects is a great way to encourage and engage them in new robotics and coding activities and projects. 

Various Robotics Kits for Beginners, such asBee-bots, Blue-bots, Mbots , or for more advanced programmers, such as Lego Mindstorms, are available on the market and can be a fun way to teach children about robots and coding.

  • Join Workshops or Summer/Boot Camps 


Sign up your child for various bootcamps or workshops to encourage him or her to learn more about coding and robotics. This combines fun with the opportunity for children and teenagers to build and engineer robots while learning to code. 

Competitive challenges in which children and teenagers create various projects and complete assignments are common in these programs. 

  • Through apps and websites 

There are several applications and websites available that teach coding to kids and teens using block-based coding. They mix visual code blocks into entertaining, colorful projects that are designed to engage and teach children. 

Coding becomes significantly less daunting when combined with block code and bright graphics in a gaming scenario.

Websites such as, Scratch, Thunkable, and others fall under this category.

  • Teach through various offline/online Platforms 


Offline/Online courses are another way for children to learn about coding and robotics. Enrolling children and teenagers in these classes will provide them with a whole new experience. 


Weekly assignments, a flexible/fixed schedule, highly engaging sessions with a curriculum tailored to children’s needs, and an expert instructor are common features of these courses. 


Coding for children is most successful when taught in imaginative contexts that encourage exploration and discovery. 

Based on your child’s interests and abilities, explore these options and choose which one is ideal for him or her.
