Innovate Online Coding Academy is an after school coding academy for kids and Teens in Australia, New Zealand and across the world who are interested in advancing their knowledge and skills in computer science. The Online Coding Academy is an extension of the Innovate Program which has the primary focus on getting students to code, learn, upskill and challenge themselves.
Coding is an important skill to prepare students for the jobs which already exist and the jobs to be. Many more jobs are coming up which require good knowledge of coding and a computer science background. Through coding, students will learn about logic, computational thinking,  improve their critical thinking and problem solving skills. What’s more, they get to build on their soft skills such as resilience, communication and learning to work with others successfully while working on their challenges. They will develop an understanding of how the web works and create working websites. 
By learning how to code, students will enhance their digital literacy skills, improve their ability to focus on the tasks at hand and learn how to use the computer productively to their advantage. They will have a better understanding of how programs work and the enjoyment that comes with thinking through things and creating something that works.
