Using interactive and engaging coding projects our free creative computing courses are designed to give these children the opportunity to develop practical skills in problem solving, creativity and computational thinking. Children get to code their very own projects, leaving them with the skills and confidence they will need for a future increasingly driven by technology.
Students are introduced to key topics and begin immediately applying what they’re learning through mini activities - building confidence in their coding vocabulary.
Students move step-by-step through the creation of animations, games and applications from scratch, applying their knowledge in a variety of practical scenarios.
Students are given a coding challenge brief and some suggestions - the rest is up to them. They can be as imaginative as they like, while using the skills they've learned.
* For children under the age of 11, we'd encourage you to apply, but do let us know about any previous programming experience as the course is too challenging for most young students without prior knowledge.
Students who have registered interest will be given access to our online learning portal. We will issue regular online challenges for students to complete, with the top students being awarded prizes at the end of the term.
We will offer over 200 places on our weekly coding clubs to students.
The clubs will be held on regular Saturdays in South Kensington, and Wednesdays in White City.
Places will be awarded based upon our selection criteria.
We will be expanding upon the Spring 2019 cohort, offering more places to even more students.
We will be running a series of hackathons, workshops and other events for students in London over the school holiday period.
We will let you know as soon as possible if your child has been successfully awarded a place on the Imperial Codelab.
Computers are provided and students receive a certificate for each term they attend.
