In today’s society, more and more opportunities are becoming available for careers in computer science. The demand for young talent in these fields is steadily growing as corporations become aware of the potential of the new generation. Fields such as cyber security, cloud computing, and Internet of Things rapidly expanding and present great career opportunities for those who specialize in those fields. Despite the growing need for able-minded technicians in these areas, school systems are doing little to encourage or compensate.
Many students struggle in the areas of mathematics and science, and those that excel in those subjects are not often given ample room for growth. In addition, many schools do not offer many classes for engineering or technology. The education industry is slowly starting to catch up, but it will be many years before well-developed curriculums centred on STEM are widely used. However, there are many other ways for young students to get involved with STEM.
Coding clubs, are a great way for anyone to build and learn new things. In a coding club, teams of three to four students put their heads together to design and build a solution to a predefined real-world problem. Both inexperienced and experienced participants work together in a friendly, competitive environment to exercise all aspects of STEM. Usually, there are experienced coaches who have strong backgrounds in a STEM career to help refine the projects and provide positive criticism.
No matter how much experience one has with STEM, participating in coding clubs is a great way to broaden one’s horizons and acquire the skill set needed to work in a field of Computer Science.
