The world is vastly becoming more digital and with this, the skill programming is becoming increasingly important. Everyday there are new initiatives and implementations that involve programming, which change the requirements for jobs in a heartbeat. Parents want their kids to be futureproof by teaching them STEM skills. Knowing how to program results in great STEM skills but there is no fitting educational environment and there aren’t enough knowledgeable teachers to teach young kids programming. There are initiatives that try to teach kids how to program in the form of Educational Technology (EdTech) toys. However having fun is lacking; the current EdTech toys focus on learning how to program first and having fun is only secondary.
LoCoMoGo strongly believes in Fun First and that kids will learn by playing. Therefore LoCoMoGo is developing a physical toy train which teaches young kids how to program in a playful manner.
