As we participate in the digital revolution, we need to train our children on skills for the digital age. Computational thinking (CT) has been recognized as one of the key 21st century skills and involves understanding a problem, designing a solution and expressing it in a form that a human or a machine can execute. CT has been introduced into the mainstream curricula in many countries and India has joined them with the The draft National Education Policy 2019 recognizing CT as a fundamental skill. The education policy recommends teaching CT from age 6 using well designed worksheets.
