Code for All Junior
Unicef claims we are having a global learning crisis because we don’t reach every child even with a basic education. Worldwide, this is costing governments billions a year. We believe the children of today are tomorrow coding rock-stars, so we created a computer science learning platform, Blanc. Blanc is a platform that has everything a teacher and a child can need in a programming classroom, anywhere in the world, from videos to games to coding sessions, adventures and challenges. Blanc is also the teacher's best friend, providing all the necessary materials for each lesson and KPI’s on students’ performance and the entire class. All lessons are based on the Sustainable Development Goals from the United Nations so that children learn how to be great citizens, while learning how to code. A study has proven that these children improved their logic reasoning and math abilities in 9%-17%. Their smiles also got bigger. Since September 2017, more than 30.000 children are discovering the universe of programming, so that one day they'll program the universe.
