Course Information

Overview

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

Levels

(Note: If you dont know what level to enrol your child start them in Level 1. We will assess them once they start and move them to the level that most suits their abilities)

Level 1
Introducing the basic concepts of coding in a fun and easy to learn format. This course will have them making animations, generating music and creating multiple games.

Level 2
This level 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 their previous knowledge. Here we dive in to more complex programs and make more detailed games.

Level 3
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.

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.

What to bring

Lunch (if attending the full day course), Snacks (no nuts please), and a drink.

Equipment

We provide all the equipment need for this course, yet if you have a Raspberry Pi of your own you can bring it along.

Details

Holiday Courses:
2 Full Days
Time: 9:00am – 3:00pm

Term Courses:
6 Saturdays (1.5 hours per session)
Time: 2:00pm – 3:30pm

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.
