Just got back about a week ago from our first Great Homeschool Convention. It was a great time meeting all the wonderful parents there that passed by our booth and to see their passion they have for their kids. What great christian beliefs and friendly people. We learned a few things on our adventure:
- WE LEARNED parents want family discounts for our online coding pathways for youth. UPDATE: We have now implemented this and you can add family members to your regular monthly membership and you can always downgrade later if one of the kids don’t like the computer programming kind of thing.
- WE LEARNED that homeschool parents are awesome and really care about the skills that their children will learn.
- WE LEARNED that age is not a great indicator of whether a child is ready to do computer programming or not, but that “typing” is the key component! If your child can Nitrotype 15 words per minute, then he/she will have a good experience learning coding. Usually this is around age 10 if that helps!
- WE LEARNED that Twix was the preferred chocolate at our booth, and Baby Ruth came in dead last!
