  • Don’t just let your children play Minecraft, get them coding with it! In this virtual summer term class, children will be taught to code using Minecraft, in a fun learning environment. This class runs like an after school club. There is a class once a week every week at the same time. Minecraft sessions last an hour. WHEN :
    Days Level: Mincraft 1 (Beginner)
    Thursday 4.15 PM - 5.15 PM
    Second Half Term Starts: 5th Nov 2020 Term Ends: 3rd Dec 2020 Duration: 5 weeks Frequency: Once a week Challenges may vary depending on the child’s age/ability as we have multiple streams running within each session. What you would need
    • A computer with the Zoom web conferencing software installed.
    • Minecraft Education Edition (available for PC/Mac/iPAD). Download for PC/Mac here. For the iPad, please visit the app store.
    • Please check system requirements prior to booking here.
    Age Requirement: 7 to 12 No prior coding experience necessary. If you have been to one of our camps before or attended a term-long Minecraft Coding class, then we would suggest booking the Intermediate Mincraft Coding class which covers more advanced topics. Once you have placed your order,  you will receive all the class joining instructions in a downloadable file via a confirmation email.

  • MINECRAFT Coding Intermediate Level Take your Minecraft coding knowledge further with the new Code Kids Intermediate level Minecraft Coding course this Autumn. You will take your knowledge of creative game play to the next level as we explore the interplay between code, command blocks, and Redstone to create multi-player games. We will also introduce Minecraft JavaScript and Python coding to children. This will set them up for the next level of their coding journey which will use ‘real-world’ text-based programming languages such as Java, Python or JavaScript. Who is the course for? The course is aimed at children who are at least 9 years of age or those who have a good grasp of the beginner level concepts which were covered during the Spring and Summer term classes. What we will cover in the Intermediate Minecraft course:
    • We will focus more on multiplayer games where the children can interactively play inside each other's Minecraft worlds.
    • Advanced data structures: using object Variables, Lists and Dictionaries
    • Use of Logic, and nested logic statements to make in-game decisions.
    • Advanced loops: using For loops and While loops embedded with logic
    • Using Functions to create reusable and clean code.
    • Combining Command blocks and Code to create highly interactive games
    • We will explore basic JavaScript and Python coding techniques. This is the next step up from block-based coding and opens up a whole new world of 'real-life' coding opportunities.

  • This course is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language. Learn to code using your favourite gaming platform and develop fun Roblox games. Our Lua based code editor is particularly suitable for this age group because it is really easy to use and can be built up to more text-heavy coding once you get comfortable with the basics. This camp is a great introduction to both fundamental programming concepts and the Lua programming language. Lua is widely used as a scripting language by game developers across the world. By the end of the course, the students will be comfortable programming and creating Roblox games and will have published at least one game on to Roblox, which could end up helping them make lots of Robux!
    • Design a Roblox game
    • Learn Lua syntax and use it to script your game
    • Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
    • Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
    • Create and use functions
    • Use all of the above to make a super cool game

    Days Time Level
    Thursday 6.45 PM - 7.45 PM Roblox Coding, Level 1 (Beginner)
      Second Half Term Starts: 5th Nov 2020 Term Ends: 3rd Dec 2020 Duration: 5 weeks Frequency: Once a week Challenges may vary depending on the child’s age/ability as we have multiple streams running within each session. EQUIPMENT NEEDED: A computer with a web browser. You will need to have the following free software installed: Challenges may vary depending on the child’s age/ability as we have multiple streams running within each session. Age Requirement: 10+ No prior coding experience necessary. If your child has been to one of these workshops before, then their learning will be extended further and they will not have to repeat the same content as before.
  • The Python Level 1 course is designed for late primary to secondary aged students who are looking to learn to code using a proper “grown-up” programming language. Students will learn to code in Python and create fun games and useful applications. Python is particularly suitable for this age group because it is concise, easy to read and has multiple applications in the real world (web development, app development and other scientific uses such as data science). It is the most popular programming language in the world and is widely used by all the leading tech companies such as Google, Amazon and Facebook. This class is a great introduction to both fundamental coding concepts and the Python programming language. After this course, students will be comfortable coding in Python and have the confidence to extend their knowledge at home.
    • Learn Python syntax (structure)
    • Use loops and conditionals (IF/THEN/ELSE)
    • Understand variables (number, Boolean, string)
    • Create and use functions
    • Use all of the above to make games and robot chat bot applications
