We run a number of code clubs and courses for children in York  The clubs teach programming skills and can link it to physical electronics if they want. The ethos of the clubs are to have fun with computers and to learn to program.

There is really no limit to how far the skills can go as it is all up to the imagination and the programming skills developed. There are several teenage volunteers who are all studying GCSE electronics and computing to assist pupils so you will not be left behind if you join the club at a later time.

£10 per session or £55 for 6 weeks.

Minecraft Programming course

A short course designed to teach children how to code in Python using the game of Minecraft. They’ll be introduced to the Python language and use it to write and develop programs to make the character teleport, build blocks, hit blocks and make things happen, and develop functions.

The children will learn sequences, IF, ELSE,WHILE, functions, WHEN and apply their maths and basic algebra skills to problems. It’s also great fun and highly engaging.
