Detailed Description

In this course, children explore computational thinking, program Lego robots, and make games. Our Little Coders Club start their journey by becoming familiar with iPads before introducing them to coding logic and reasoning. We introduce Little Coders to the basic idea of robotics, circuits and motors with LEGO WeDo. They will get to create their very own (incredibly cool) robots!

Your child will also develop their programming skills using Scratch Jr, an introductory programming language that enables young children to create their own stories, animations and games.

Basic ICT skills and introductory computing concepts are an important first step for children when grasping the standards set by the new National Computing Curriculum.

When booking a single session, please let us know the date you will be attending in the comments.
