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.
The Imperial Codelab is free to attend for girls, and for boys attending schools meeting our diversity criteria.
Once you have applied for a place we will provide you with more details regarding the class location and anything else you need to know. Computers are provided and students receive a certificate for each term they attend.
