Event description

Description

Run by our Tech Tutor John and his team, Coding Club gives children the opportunity to use the class-set of Raspberry Pi educational computers to learn to code in Scratch; a computer language designed at MIT for children.

The course loosely follows the resource packs provided by "codeclubworld.org" which over a one-year period begins with Scratch, then advances to web/HTML, and then Python.

The club has a high teacher-to-student ratio, so the pace and learning style can be personalised to suit each child’s needs.

Using resources including Minecraft, Coding Club is a great way for kids to gain valuable tech skills, while also making connections with other children in the club through in-game and online chat!

Through Coding Club, kids can learn to:

  • write a game in Scratch

  • learn to code in Python (and manipulate Minecraft)

  • set up a RaspberryPi as a web-server

  • develop web pages using HTML and CSS

  • (advanced) create a web page which can interact and control Minecraft Pi

  • (super-advanced) if there is enough interest, we will teach server-side JavaScript using node.js
