BROOKLYN -

Kindergarteners in Brooklyn are learning to code.

The tech students at the New American Academy Charter School might be young, but their teacher says it’s important they get an early start.  

Teacher Aditya Ralimane says teaching the young students how to code early is as essential as teaching them math and reading.

He says in 10 years, coding is going to be everywhere.

The coding lesson was developed by a teacher who used an open source program.
