Code Club (Garstang)
Thu 24 August 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
at Garstang Library every Thursday during school term
Code Club is aimed at children aged 9 – 11 years (Parental consent required), but we are happy for younger children to come along and have a go, if they have good computer skills.
Come along to the library to learn how to code.
Learning to code is an important skill now we’re living in a digital age. It’s not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know how it works and how to build it too.
Learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer - it strengthens problem solving and logical thinking skills, and is useful for a range of other disciplines, careers and hobbies.
The sessions are really informal and drop in, so if you can't make it in at 9.30. then just come along when you can!

In this 'digital age', children spend an awful lot of their time with video games, computers and devices. But, they are only passively consumingdigital technology. With coding, they take control, literally creating their own entertainment and learning how digital technology 'ticks' in the process.
