Coding and Digital Making
We want children to be confident with technology and think the best way for them to learn is through experiment and play. We run several Code Clubs and Hello World sessions where children can come together, collaborate, learn and have fun.
We also loan micro:bits so you can carry on coding at home.
Code Club is a national network of volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9 to 11. Children follow a curriculum which takes them through the basics of coding using Scratch, HTML & CSS and Python.
We have Code Clubs in the Central Library and Devonport Library; all are currently full. Email us if you would like your child to be added to the waiting list.
Hello World is a drop in session and a bit more chaotic than Code Club. We do some coding, but also a lot more digital making. This might include paper circuits or programming BBC Micro:bits or the Raspberry Pi. We also have Makey Makeys, a Sphero, Ozobot, LittleBits and more. We provide the space and resources and the children provide the imagination.
We sometimes have guest speakers who work in the tech industry and can share what its like to make a career in the digital world. Previous speakers include Jack Gill of SoGood Studios and Neil Argue of Plymouth Cubed.
