About Kids Life Skills
"Everything started when we moved to Luxembourg. I was looking for STEM courses for my daughter and I couldn't find any. I was frustrated because I felt it was so crucial for young children to understand and use technology in a more conscious way than playing Fortnite or scrolling through Instagram. And still, there were no such activities for kids below the age of 10.
So I decided to do it on my own. I went out and started creating little games based on the concepts of coding, that would train my daughter's problem solving and self-learning skills – she loved them.
One day, I was driving in the car with a colleague - with my daughter in the backseat. I was explaining something about my day job, when suddenly, out of nowhere, my daughter said: "Daddy also works with robots!"
That's when I knew that I was on to something. The games I created for her really stuck with her and later on I realised they had impacted the way she was thinking about challenges.
Since that day, I've grown the idea further and now lead regular classes open to all children curious about coding."

Mission & Vision
When we were young, our parents didn't know which skills we'd need growing up. Many of the jobs that available today didn't even exist 15-20 years ago.
Skills like independent thinking and autonomous learning are therefore extremely important because they allow a young person to adapt to the challenges they come across.
Coding represents the perfect combination of such fundamental skills, while pushing creativity and co-operation to whole new levels.
We aim to help prepare your child for their future to give them the best odds in an increasingly digital world.
nexten.io, Luxembourg's leading platform for tech jobs, approached us because in addition to connecting tech talent with hiring companies, they are also building a community for developers in Luxembourg. They believe that investing in children's education is important to inspire the next generation of local tech talent.
