If you think computer coding is hard, then you might need to go back to primary school because, last week, Havas EHS proved even four-year-olds are capable.
The agency sponsored a creative festival, Coding Corner, at St Saviour's Primary School in Paddington, London, teaching four-year-olds how to code. More than 200 pupils explored 20 creative activities that included learning how to program a Lego robot crocodile. The agency's business development director, Nick Corston, who has two sons at the school, co-founded the event after realising it would be more constructive for children to learn a useful skill than play mindless computer games. It's safe to say Mark Zuckerberg won't have to worry about competition from these children for at least two years.
