Amazing Holiday Coding & Videogame Design Workshops For Children Of All Ages
Creating Amazing Games To Play At Home
In our sessions we’ll learn about what makes games like Minecraft, FIFA and Mario Bros. so popular before handing over the creation tools to our budding gamers. Your children will have fun, make friends and create some cool games. They will not even know they are learning valuable skills.
Best way to develop a coding mindset
The best way to learn to code in any language is to have a project you are interested in. Videogames gives kids the desire to problem solve and create their own versions of the games they love.
Nurturing Children’s Creativity
Everyone works towards a common goal, in teams, on challenges that will stretch their creativity in art, design, maths, problem solving, team work and communication.
More than just code
These fun sessions are not just about code. By learning how to create games we aim to boost skills like literacy, numeracy, creativity, leadership, problem solving, teamwork, communication, perseverance and the ability to work together towards a goal. We encourage them to have fun and go off piste and learn by doing.
Supporting The New School Curriculum
Every primary student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. The recent changes in the national curriculum have recognised the need and ability for children to start early. Our workshops supplement the classroom experience with fun and inspirational activities.
Structure of the workshops
Each day has fun games, challenges and problems to solve. Those with more experience are challenged to work on their own projects or fall back on the structured challenges if they prefer. You can attend 1 or more days as you like each day stands on its own.
Our next workshops begin Monday 23rd October 2017 and a week later in Wales.
What to bring
All the kids need to bring is a packed lunch and their creative genius!
Timings of the Day
Each workshop starts at 10am and finishes at 3pm with 45 mins for lunch and some group fun exercises away from the screens.
What is the Age Range?
Anyone between 8 and 12 is welcome and will find the projects interesting and engaging. The limit tends to be their imagination and creativity rather than their current coding skills.
