This is a positive step spearheaded by a private group. Clearly government has no capability in this area...as Iíve discovered...and needs its hand held.

Some years ago the previous Minister of Education appointed a STEM Education Coordinator and assigned the asset to work with me. I was shocked to discover that their knowledge base in the field was ZERO. I spent much of the following 2 years teaching her the disciplines and introducing her to solution providers I liked and knew were appropriate for JA. She learned well and was effective but received paltry support which limited her effectiveness. Thatís typical government 🥱

Learning to code post secondary school is useful. I understand neophytes who donít have a workforce development background getting excited by this worthwhile project. However if JA is to move the needle significantly in coding or any other scitech field - waiting until post secondary years for training will help somewhat but is totally insufficient. Kids must be exposed to the discipline from primary or even basic school level and continue through secondary and tertiary education to enable strong skills able to compete globally. That will get my props.

Fortunately JA has the example and experience of the 1000+ students in 50 schools participating in our robotics project which includes coding. Getting kids excited about and assimilating technology skills at 12 years old is already happening. Raise that to 20 thousand kids/year over interrelated programs and JA could have a shot at moving the development needle significantly.
