Many parents and friends hope that their children can go to famous schools in the future, so they help their children to sign up for various remedial classes, hoping that their children can get A’s in all their homework.
But Chinese parents tend to overlook the fact that a prestigious school’s admission – in addition to GPA and ACT / SAT scores, especially American schools, are more inclined to admit students with outstanding strengths.
The purpose of Ivy League schools is to develop team spirit leaders, so that one area of excellence can help your child stand out among thousands of applicants.
Computer Programming, The Golden Key to the Ivy
How do students demonstrate the qualities Ivy School is looking for? A little-known shortcut is computer programming.
Computer programming can not only give children a very forward-looking discipline foundation, but also cultivate children’s logical thinking, if you can win a competition medal, more like a golden key to the Ivy League.
For example, USACO (United States Computer Olympiad) as the United States Computer Olympiad national team trials, has been the attention of major universities. If you can get excellent results in the competition, it will make the application for elite schools become like a duck in water.
For example, Guo Wenjing of Hangzhou No. 2 Middle School in 2015 and Luo Zhezheng of High School Attached to Normal University in 2017 were selected by USACO to represent the United States in the IOI (International Olympiad in Informatics), and they made their mark on the international stage. After high school, they were admitted to Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
At present, the domestic youth programming education compared with the United States, there is still a relatively large gap. More than 60% of children in K12 in the United States have a coding education, while less than 5% in China.
Although in recent years, domestic programming education institutions have sprung up, the market is still in the verification stage, and the lack of time-tested curriculum systems and curriculum standards makes it difficult to guarantee children’s learning effects.
How to let children access to world-class programming education resources, so that children can achieve the best learning effect, is a problem faced by many parents.
