Through the implementation and operation of the programming school "Tech Kids School" and introductory programming workshop "Tech Kids CAMP," we have provided programming educational opportunities to over 30,000 elementary students in just five years.
Our efforts go beyond just helping kids acquire IT programming knowledge and skills; we are also fostering the skills to design, realize an idea, and make forward progress in our aim to encourage the development of "talent capable of using technology as a tool to realize their own ideas and actively engage in society."
CA Tech Kids also carries out activities that promote the introduction and popularization of learning programming skills in public education. These activities include outreach programming classes at primary schools, policy recommendations on programming education, collaborative efforts with government, and more.
From a desire to provide programming education opportunities to all children regardless of economic or geographic situation, we have been visiting schools and municipalities across Japan to implement outreach programming classes. In November 2015, we also held outreach programming classes in Rikuzentakata city (Iwate prefecture) and Iwaki city (Fukushima prefecture), areas affected by the Great East Japan Earthquake.
