Event description

Description

Be the coolest kid in school with your knowledge of Python and electronics! Learn how to plot fun graphs in Python, light up your pencil cases with LEDs and EL wire, and discover other cool hacks to show your school friends.

How Code Club works

We run monthly "clubs" where up to 30 kids can learn new skills and technologies, from web coding and programming, to electronics and manufacturing. No coding experience necessary. And no special equipment required.

Our clubs are always free, and always staffed by experienced, friendly, DBS/CRB-checked volunteers. We’re kindly hosted by Liverpool Libraries, and we’re part of the All About STEM network.

Who this is for

Our September session is ideal for kids aged 8–12 years – especially ones who’ve never done any programming before.

We’ll show them all the basics in the first hour, then after a short break, we’ll let them experiment with what they’ve learned, and build something amazing, either individually, or as part of a team.

What they’ll learn

This month’s session is a mix of practical and digital skills. We’ll introduce the kids to Python graphing libraries, and show them how to make beautiful graphs and patterns out of maths and code. And then, after the break, we’ll show them how to "upgrade" their pencil cases into digital works of art, with simple electrical circuits and lights.

How to book onto this event

It’s simple – just use the "Register" button on this page! There’s no payment – our events are always free.

Please note, you’ll only be registering for our September event. If you want your kid to attend our other 2019 events, you’ll need to register onto those events separately, by following the links below.
