We pride ourselves on our ability to cater to students who are racing ahead, while supporting those who need more time to practise their skills. We aim to help students better understand the technological tools they have at their disposal, and how they can create rather than simply consume. Students are encouraged to adopt an experimental mindset, and think ‘What if?’ We believe that people with unique interests learn to code for different reasons, and there are many ways to engage kids with technology in a way they find exciting and encouraging.
- Beginner or intermediate
- 6 to 16 years old
- Participants will be grouped according to age.
