Computational Thinking
‘Kids Life Skills’ is a non-profit organization that aims to give kids ages of 4-13 life skills that are important for the ‘Z’ generation (and all of us) such as self-learning, problem solving and teamwork via coding. By teaching and developing their understanding of general concepts, through games and adventure. We are upscaling and giving the kids a positive technological experience at an early age. We start the activity focusing on the logic, away from the screen and gradually connect the concepts to actual code, following learning coding, we add another layer of connecting the code on the computer to the real world, via plug-ins, and wireless connected devices, sensors and robotics. Our courses and activities are fun, engaging, stimulating and integrating hands-on games and activities. We strongly believe in allowing the kids the time to experiment, try, and get it wrong until they find a solution.

Through this activity our sports team will use fun as a tool to involve children in the soccer game. The goal develop their motor and sports growth.
