These coding workshops will teach children aged 10 – 14 to use the program Scratch from scratch!
This is a development project where children will build their skills over six live webinars via Zoom. There will be an online tutorial and then some homework to practice the lesson of the day.
They will learn the basics of computer programming and language, developing skills which will help them in a fun, enjoyable and creative way.
Children must have a computer and a good Wifi connection to participate in the workshops, and a working knowledge of the PC or laptop being used prior to taking part.
This is suitable for children who are interested in coding and computers.
The first webinar will take place at 11.30am on Saturday the 13th of June for Cruinniú na nÓg, with the following five taking place at the same time each day from Monday the 15th to Friday the 19th of June inclusive.
