Description

Why this initiative?

I am passionate about enhancing digital knowledge of younger generation, and would like them to develop their affinity towards software programming rather than been addicted to passive gaming. I am also an A-level Student, studying in a Grammar School

Previous experience:

I have successfully run the first ever Coding Club at The Curve, Slough for a period of 5 months. The course was oversubscribed, and kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Although it was voluntary, I had an average of over 95% attendance. I have personally seen the growth of digital skill-sets of kids.

What the course will cover?

We are aiming to complete 8/9 coding projects, using the programme “Scratch”. Each week we will build upon their new learnt skills. We will provide the materials and give tasks, which if not completed in class, they must be completed at home.

Benefits of the course


  • Fun-learning - building own games and learn basic programming language “Scratch”
  • Encourage creativeness – this will help other subjects and school curriculum.
  • Develop passion for computing – will prepare young people for the future digital world
  • Growing confidence - peer help and support, making small classes a great place to learn.
  • Head start in school curriculum - As the Guardian states, ICT – Information and Communications Technology – is out, replaced by a new “computing” curriculum.

Course details:


  • The course for 2017 will start early September, as many are away during summer holiday.
  • 10 weeks’ course - classes will continue even in half term breaks.
  • Saturday morning – one hour duration.
  • Kids must bring their own laptop, so that they can access the programme at home


Payment:

Charges are £5 per hour. Total course fee (10 weeks) is £50 (no VAT). The amount can be paid in advance monthly or full amount before the start of the course.


THE EVENT STARTS FROM 9TH SEPTEMBER:LIMITED SPACES OF 5 FOR EACH CLASS (LOW SPACES AVAILABLE)
