Course Information

Overview

A great starting course for those with no previous (or limited) experience in Coding. If they have never coded before, never used Scratch then this is the course for them.

Intro to Coding (Level 1)
Covering the basic concepts of coding in a fun and easy to learn format, this course will have them making animations, generating music and creating games in no time.

Intro to Coding (Level 2)
Following on from “Intro to Coding (Level 1)”, this course is for those who have done some coding before and have an understanding of Scratch basics. This course will help develop a deeper understanding of Coding by building on previous knowledge. Here we dive in to more complex coding programs and making more detailed games.

Intro to Coding (Level 3)
The 3rd part of our Intro to Coding course, this level is for those who have a good understanding of Scratch and have completed the previous 2 levels of this course. We build on the skills they have developed so far and extend them even further by incorporating elaborate animations, complex game design structures and introducing AI features.

Intro to Coding (Level 4)
The final of the Introduction to Coding levels, here they have the opportunity to apply what they have learnt through the creation of individually conceived games and programs. A great way in which to wrap up and display what they have learnt throughout this course.

Audience

Suitable for ages 7+, and all abilities.

Prerequisite

This course requires no previous knowledge of Coding.

Outcomes

At the successful conclusion of this course they will have gained a deeper understanding of how coding works. This will give them a solid foundation in which they can then continue to develop their coding skills with the move towards learning a more specific coding language, such as Python (in our Hacking Minecraft 1 course).

NB: Courses will run subject to a minimum number attending.
