## Arrays vs. Classes

Why do we need Classes, why not just use Arrays and work things out? A lot of kids ask this question: why do we need classes, why not just use arrays and put all data together in one array or in a couple of arrays and access? It is understandable why kids are asking this

## Complexity Classes (P, NP) of Problems in Computer Science & Coding

Let’s talk about how functions in mathematics is related to coding in this blog. You must have already written some code in some language and you might’ve used for-loops or while-loops and processed some data using these loops. We typically write different code in various languages to solve some problems like, say sorting an array

## Why should kids learn to code?

Coding is fundamentally nothing but creativity and problem-solving. These are traits that should be inculcated at a very young age in every kid. Yes, we do teach other subjects to achieve the same goal. But, no other subject actually has the power to inculcate creativity and problem-solving with immediate output that the kids can see
