Ages 8 - 12

The primary objective of our clubs is to introduce the benefits of computation to the next generation. Our next generation’s scientists, engineers, teachers, entrepreneurs, and artists must all be able to innovate using computation. Therefore, we propose to introduce young students to computational thinking. We believe this is the ideal age because the students are mature enough to understand key mathematical concepts and have acquired basic computer usage skills, yet are young enough to have few misconceptions about computer science.

The course will cover:

  1. Introduction to Scratch
  2. Create your own Sprite
  3. Week 3: Create a Scratch Story
  4. Create a Game – The Hero
  5. Create a Game – The Villain
  6. Create a Game – The Reward

Ages 12 to 18

The course will cover:

  • Fundamentals of coding – key concepts and structure of languages and projects
  • Project design – theory and practice for designing a simple game or app
  • Coding – participants will learn to code in Python, work on mini- projects, building graphical interfaces, games and problem-solving routines.

Our students will gain the foundations of computer science, enabling them to carry on with educational or independent learning in the future.

We find that many students who have already started to learn to program on their own find our teaching method very helpful as they will be able to fill in any gaps in their fundamental knowledge. Python is used as the main coding language by most schools for the programming element of the GCSE and A Level Computer Science courses. Our curriculum has been designed to make sure key ideas and concepts have been covered to help support students who will be taking either of these courses if they are not already taking them.
