Coding for Kids

Course Overview

A comprehensive introduction to the amazing world of coding, this fun school holiday workshop takes you on an exploration of how code is used in robotics, animations and video games.

Starting with basic coding principles, students explore robotics using Ozobot, the line-following programmable robot. Students learn how to code and program the robots to dance and move to complete a series of fun challenges.

Day two introduces students to coding animations. Students learn to create their own moving gifs and progress to stop-motion animation.

Finally, students discover how to code and develop their own basic video game. Using the latest software, students brainstorm story lines and character development before coding their very own game.

The perfect starter course, it gives students a solid understanding of coding and is a great taster for them to then decide what areas they would like to explore further.

This workshop is suitable for students aged 9-12 years.
