Why Coding?
Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to learn how to create technology. Computer science concepts also help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills to prepare students for any future career.

Economic opportunity for all. Computing occupations are the fastest-growing, best paying, and now the largest sector of all new wages in the United States. Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed.

Students also love it! Recent surveys show that among classes students “like a lot,” computer science and engineering rank near the top—only performing arts, art, and design are higher.

Join Zaniac as we inspire children with the technology skills for a brighter future!
