Introduction to Coding

Learn what coding is and how it is used in the world. Create your first game in code.

This is an "in school" event where we come to your school and run an Introduction to Coding workshop for your students.


Our instructor takes your students through an Introduction to Coding where they learn about what coding is, how it is used in the world and the key concepts behind it.

We then work on a lesson where the students create a game using coding and also program micro computers called "Microbits" to display different things on their screens when you shake them and interact with them.

We finish off by programming the Microbits to send messages to each other using the radio transducers that are built into them.
