New Code the Future program will launch in the Philippines then roll out across APAC.
ASIA- Turner Asia Pacific has launched a new initiative that will teach students the basics of computer programming with the help of Cartoon Network brands and characters.
Called Code the Future with Cartoon Network, the initiative will launch first in the Philippines before rolling out regionally across Asia.
It includes an in-school adventure camp, a young ambassador initiative and a website with coding tutorials, videos and concepts from Cartoon Network.
Three-month-long Code the Future workshops started in July at 10 different Metro Manila schools where kids ages 8 to 10 are learning the fundamentals of coding from Cartoon Network’s shows “Ben 10,” “Adventure Time,” “The Powerpuff Girls” and “We Bare Bears.”
Students will come away with an understanding of planes of movement, conditional thinking, and how to create animated sprites and characters.
“Coding is where tech, engineering and the arts all converge, and has become vitally important for this current generation of plurals,” says Vishal Dembla, GM, Turner Southeast Asia. “Through this initiative, Cartoon Network will equip children–via a hugely fun and colorful method of instruction–with an essential tool that can open up many doors.”
