Cartoon Network is encouraging students to learn the basics of computer programming with its new Code the Future platform.

Part of a regional campaign across Asia Pacific, Code the Future with Cartoon Network includes an in-school adventure camp, a young ambassador initiative and a website featuring coding tutorials, videos and concepts from the studio.

The campaign uses a free programming language and online community that provides access for those wanting to create and share interactive stories, games and animation.

“Coding is where tech, engineering and the arts all converge and has become vitally important for this current generation of plurals,” said Vishal Dembla, Turner’s Southeast Asia general manager.

“Through this initiative, Cartoon Network will equip children – via a hugely fun and colourful method of instruction – with an essential tool that can open up many doors.”

Cartoon Network’s popular series Ben 10, Adventure Time, The Powerpuff Girls and We Bare Bears will each feature across the platform that kicks off its three month workshop this July.

It will run across ten different Metro Manila schools, a region in which 57 per cent of kids aged four to 14 learn coding in schools.

Turner has also enlisted the help of two young Filipino coders to take part in the campaign and Code the Future.
