It seems that the country is hoping to push children into programming from primary school. Media reports reveal that the Estonian Tiger Leap Foundation has recently started a program titled "ProgeTiiger". In frames of this program, students in grades one to twelve will be taught computer programming and creating Internet and mobile apps.
Estonia, known for giving the world Skype and Playtech, is now going to set its kids onto programming from their very first day at school, though in other countries kids are just mumbling their way through the alphabet during the first year.
According to Tiger Leap Foundation training sphere manager, children are quite interested in modern technology from a very early age, so the ProgeTiiger program is supposed to create prerequisites for kids to shift from consumers of software to its developers.
Thus far, the program is being tested in pilot schools, but the company is planning to roll it out to state schools in the near future. Nevertheless, the first kids to start the programming lessons will be primary school students. This will happen after their teachers pass through corresponding training this month.
In addition, the program includes the programming hobby groups for middle school students, as well as selective courses for high school students.
The country’s Tiger Leap Foundation explained that it launched the project in question because it saw how many enterprises keep struggling to find good programmers. After the program is in force, the outfit thinks it’ll push the country to the forefront of the rest of the Eastern Europe in terms of programming development and growth.

|Hopefully they will produce more hackers & crackers, than virus-writing dudes.|
|Goddammit I wanna be a child now... Like really bad, not even a time machine could save me, no... my parents are complete monsters i wouldn't be able to manipulate them into having me now... hopefully this is not a corporate enslavement scheme, need based education has been enslavement from the time of serfs and slaves, even if you use psychology to instill desire and want for the direction you lead, thats scary, thats like some kinda vulcan space race sh!t. Atleast its not a coal mining town that uses chits or credits where your not paid real money and your only paid enough to cover your rent and food. When you have kids there's less money for food and supplies and u start getting in debt to the companies general store. U die there, your debt is bequeathed to you children and they inherit nothing but your fate. they where taught one thing, how to mine. But nooooo this sounds awesome like the kids would be learning tools and have the broad freedoms to persue technology with creative freedom like making video games or creating networking software to bring music artists from across the globe into your studio for virtual band sessions.|

|the source may be supplemented by working different branches containing programming principles as there is plenty of work open if it is only for some all the time to leave their country in search of work.|
