Many academicians have advocated to introduce little kids to programming at early age. Not that they want everyone to become a programmer, but because they believe programming teaches you how to think. This workshop at Flourish Sunshade Association was a successful event where children from financially challenged families were introduced to robotics and electronics.
The key takeaway for me on this day was at the end of the session when a little guy came up to me, shook hand, gave me a hug as if I have introduced him to something he was born for.
It was a very positive session.
