  9. 9. Curiosity-fueled learning and creative thinking are becoming the most important traits to thrive in the 21st century. Yet we have a school system that numbs curiosity and kills creativity. Teaching kids to program at an early age is at the core of solving this problem. We believe that by giving kids tools to program the physical world we can create the revolution needed to make every child a maker.
  10. 10. “Kids should learn to program and not be programmed”
  11. 11. We want to make open technologies accessible to every child so that they can create the future they want to see. To succeed in this, we need partners who share our values and want to help us realize our goals. We welcome ‘good spirit’ companies and organizations to support our mission and become partners and associated members of the Kids Hack Day community. JOIN OUR COMMUNITY
