Home > Why Learn to Code
Coding helps you solve complex problems
As a tool, Coding is a powerful tool that can be used as a mechanism not just for teaching students about Computer Science but also other subjects, in particular STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art and Mathematics) subjects.
During our courses, students will explore several different challenging problems in a variety of areas. By design, many of our projects are inherently interdisciplinary and would incorporate other sciences, including Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math and other subjects
Learning to Code enables you to make a positive change
According to the Association of Computing Machinery. “Computing drives innovation in the sciences (human genome project, Vaccine research, environmental monitoring and transport, to name a few), and has also made strides in areas such as business, entertainment and education. If you want to make a positive impact in the world, study computing.”
Computer Science projects at CARIRI have considered problems with the potential to impact a wide range of people. We frequently hold hackathons and competitions that explore the development of technology that can be used to make a positive impact.
