This month, as the schools break up for the summer holidays, most parents would likely be thinking of what to do and how to keep the kids entertained over the next six weeks. The search would have begun for fun summer activities, including places to visit. Why not turn your kids into entrepreneurs?
Nick D’Aloissio, the 17 year old London based entrepreneur who just sold his app Summly for £18million, spent one of his summer holidays developing an app which subsequently lead to his success today, and he became a millionaire before his 17th birthday.
Ok, maybe not all of us can be D’Aloissio, but the number of young entrepreneurs is rising, app creation is also increasing in popularity, and because this child’s play also enables learning, it’s gaining popularity with parents.
This summer, SPARK tenant School of Coding, are providing kids the opportunity to come and learn everything from app creation to robotics. School of Coding will be running summer camps from 18th July to 30th August, the camps will equip children aged 8 -14 years with coding skills.
