Mini Coding camp for beginners age 8-12 (18th & 19th Feb 10.00 – 12.00)
This midterm why not learn to code! Over two days kids will be introduced to the world of coding using Scratch. This 4 hour, instructor-led course will give your child a good grounding in basic coding principles in a fun and interactive way using MIT-developed Scratch. Assumes no previous coding knowledge.
In this digital age giving children education in coding and new technology is vital to support their development. Playing with and using technology is one thing but to really progress it is important that children know how to create things themselves with technology.
