Description

Please note: Freeling Code Club will only start if we can get at least 5 children signed up and committed to attend the full 6 weeks of the Club during Term 1. If numbers are low and we are forced to cancel the code club we will notify those who registered via email. Thank you.

Join us in Term 1 for our Free Scratch Code Club at the Freeling Library

Code Club is a worldwide organization who provide resources for schools and libraries to run coding programs for children. In the first term of code club children learn how to start coding games, animations and stories using Scratch.

Scratch is a coding language designed just for kids by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T). It aims to get kids coding by making coding fun and accessible.

This is a progressive course and children who attend are encouraged to come each week, with spaces strictly limited. We hope to have the same group of children attend all 6 weeks as each week builds on the previous weeks learning. The targeted aged range is 8 to 12/13 years old. (upper primary school)

The dates for term 1 are as follows:

  • Tuesday February 20th (3:40 PM to 4:40 PM)

  • Tuesday February 27th (3:40 PM to 4:40 PM)

  • Tuesday March 6th (3:40 PM to 4:40 PM)

  • Tuesday March 13th (3:40 PM to 4:40 PM)

  • Tuesday March 20th (3:40 PM to 4:40 PM)

  • Tuesday March 27th (3:40 PM to 4:40 PM)

Once the sessions are booked out NO FURTHER spaces will be available.

Moving forward coding is a skill that is becoming more important for children. With the ability to code children learn that they can control computers and the world around them.

Parents can find more information about Scratch, the benefits of children learning to code and much more here.
