No worries, most people don't know what computational thinking is. You may have heard of it but you might have questions about what it means to you and your child and what it has to do with coding. Jump over to our Why? page for a quick explanation.
Yes, You Can Do This!
I've been there. If you're like me, you've never had formal training in computer science and you're probably intimidated by the idea of teaching your kid computational thinking / coding. Being here shows that you value the importance of developing your kid into a Little Problem Solver.
You don't need to be a pro to teach your kiddo the ABCs of computational thinking. Plus, we've done all the heavy lifting for you :)
At Little Problem Solvers we create activities and resources that enhance the educational experience of pre-K age kids. We've developed tons of activities to develop computational thinking skills in young children. Our logo is a logic gate that means ‘And.’ Before our kids begin kindergarten, we’ll help them become readers, learn the basics of writing, begin with math AND develop as Little Problem Solvers.
We rely heavily on the studies from top researchers like Seymour Papert, Marina Bers, Lev Vygotsky, Mitch Resnick, Jean Piaget, and others. Our activities are play-based and stress learning through constructive experiences.
"When coding is taught with a playful approach, children are not afraid to make mistakes. After all, playing is just that: playing."
