Introducing coding skills for the future:

Netspring went with Joseph Shi from the Austalian Chamber of commerce to visit Luxu Gaoxing Primary School, Wujiang. The school, sponsored by Faurecia, is currently in its third year of the Netspring Green IT classroom programme and it was good to see the students making use of the computers. Netspring also had a pilot introduction, to the kids  and teachers, of an open-source coding software adapted to children. Several studies demonstrate that learning code improve children self confidence and problem solving capacities. The students enjoyed experimenting with this, learning how to do basic code to move characters around a screen, adding sound effects.  This is in line with Nestpring mission to bringing more than just harderware but also addtionnal eductionnal value through computers.
