ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Rock Valley College is hoping to bring more people to their coding programs, including women.
The college knows robotics and learning how to code are great to help children and adults prepare for the future. RVC is introducing Ozobot to those taking the "Learn Coding with Robots" class. They say the workshop encourages people to learn that coding's not only the future, but it can also make every day life simpler.
"A lot of automated things are eventually going to replace our type of work, and we need people to fix those things if they ever go wrong," says RVC Student Volunteer Andrew Gurican. "So it's not about actively... it's not gonna be about actively doing things as much as it is fixing what the next generation of technology is gonna be like."
