It is only through a prolonged and consistent effort that anything great can be accomplished. This is reflected in our approach to teaching computer programming: start early and make it fun.
Education becomes far more goal oriented as students reach high school and college. Millions of people want to know how to program computers, but not go through the process of actually learning – they want the results without the effort! The students that start to program when they are 10 to 15 have a leg up on everyone else and do not expect instant gratification.
If the student doesn’t enjoy programming, they aren’t going to stick with it long enough to unlock the many benefits down the line. Therefore, the primary focus of Breakout Mentors is to make sure the student is having fun!
