Why CULT-TIPS?

In an increasingly digital world, learning to think like a computer is an important skill.

With so many of our daily activities mediated by computers and algorithms, it's more important than ever that children understand how a computer thinks. For some children that's second nature - they're naturally into science, robots and screens. But for other children, STEM subjects aren't necessarily their favourites. By combining computational thinking with arts and heritage in teaching, we hope to address a much wider range of children and get them all enthusiastic about both coding and culture!

You don't necessarily need a computer to learn about computational thinking. Computers like instructions, they like to break things down into patterns, they like to try things multiple times to see what happens if you change just one small variable... much like an artist, an actor or an architect!
