Event description

Description

Code Club UK, along with Lloyds Banking and Leeds Libraries is running a free introductory session for local school children to have a go at coding. No coding experience necessary and equipment will be provided.

Code Club’s ethos is that all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from. Code Club encourages learning through making, and their free coding project guides offer young people plenty of opportunities to get creative and to share their creations with each other.

Ideal for 9-13 year olds, this interactive workshops will give them the opportunity to develop their skills as they learn the basics of programming interactive stories, games and animations, whilst also progressing their coding capabilities, including using Scratch and Python. If you are a teacher looking to gain skills and confidence around coding or you are interested in setting up a Code Club, we look forward to seeing you there.

Friendly staff from Lloyds Banking Group and Leeds Libraries will be on hand to help, they will support the children with the basics before they go on to experiment themselves.
