It’s not always easy to motivate your son or daughter to start learning a new skill, but it helps to have a visual representation of how coding applies to real-life situations. This story from Miral Kotb is a fantastic example of how learning to code opens up the doors to creative freedom and ingenuity.
Starting from an early age, Kotb was a natural coder and developed her skills quite quickly. Eventually, she was able to combine her passion for coding with her passion for dance and founded iLuminate, a theater company that seamlessly fuses technology with dance. They'eve even used the technology to get onto America's Got Talent! Learn more about her story here:
Stories like this are actually more common than people think. The ability to code–and code well–sets children up for successful future no matter where they choose to apply it. And as Kotb shows, the possibilities are endless.
Opportunity isn’t the only lesson we can learn from iLuminate. As Made With Code states, “If we can inspire teen girls to see that code can help them pursue their passions, whatever they may be, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their voices to the field of technology for the benefit of us all.” Encourage your daughter to get heavily involved in coding, because you never know where it will lead her.
