Why coding?

Learn How to Code During Summer Holidays

If your children are wondering how to learn programming, these summer coding workshops are the great option to get them started.

Our one-day workshops are designed for Y2 – Y6 school student with active imagination and a passion for all things digital. Children will create their own computer games and animated stories while learning the basics programming concepts. We will encourage children to expand their imagination in this digital adventure.

During the Y2 – Y6 workshops students will be introduced to Scratch (a project of the MIT Media Lab) – essential building blocks model behind object-oriented programming. The practice is based on fun and discovery.

Our workshops will provide a balance of programming and supervised outdoor play. Kids also will have a chance to be introduced to The Mosman Art Gallery collection of art.

There are no coding prerequisites for these workshops, other than creativity and interest in a digital world.

Each student will take home their own Scratch account (accessible anywhere using student username and password) with the projects developed during workshop.

Enrol now and let your children learn how to code this summer.

What Makes Girls Fall In Love With Code?

Sydney Programming School teaches kids how to code.

So perhaps the best way to get a girl interested in computers is simply to put them in front of her as often and as early in life as we do for her male counterparts — and even more importantly, encourage her to approach computers as a producer, rather than as a consumer. As Maria Klawe put it in the video, “One of the things I hate about the current state of things is people think of technology as something you use, but not something you create.”

Indeed, that’s a mindset people of all ages and genders would do well to change.
