Learn To Code During Winter School Holidays From 4 July To 15 July

One-Day Coding Camps
If your child has ever wondered how to build a computer game, our programming one-day school holiday camps are the best place to start.

Enrol Now

Our one-day coding camps are designed for Y1 – Y6 school students with active imagination and a passion for all things digital. Students code their own computer games and interactive animation stories whilst learning the basics of programming concepts.

During the coding camps students will use Scratch Programming Environment (created by MIT Media Lab) – essential building blocks model that allows children to code amazing projects from the very first minutes. The learning process is based on fun and discovery.

We will encourage children to expand their creative thinking and problem solving skills in this programming adventure.

There will be two types of camps this Winter: Beginners Coding Camps and Advanced Coding Camps.

Beginners Coding Camps will suit children with no previous experience. Beginners camps will take place from Monday to Thursday on both weeks.

Advanced Coding Camps are designed for those children, who know how to use Scratch already and who would like to explore this platform further and create more complex and advanced projects. If you want to book your child in two days – feel free to book them in Beginners Coding Camps & Advanced coding camp. Please note, there will be just two Advanced coding camps: on Friday 8 July and Friday 15 July.

Each student will take home their own Scratch account (accessible anywhere using student username and password) with the projects developed during the camp, which can be shared with family and friends.
