Both programming workshops are designed for beginners with no previous experience in coding. Kids will be introduced to programming through the popular educational coding tool Scratch. Developed by MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Scratch is an entertaining way to teach children aged 8 to 15 to create computer programs, and it’s now used in over 150 countries. While exploring basic programming tools and algorithms, our students will create their own computer games and animated stories.

Laptops will be provided, or you can bring your own.

Have a very Marry Christmas and a fantastic New Year.

See you all on 18th January at the Liverpool City Library.
