Coding workshops for kids at the Impactory Open Days

Kids, would you like to make your own computer game?
Come to one of our workshops and we’ll show you how. Bring your friends, it will be fun!

Parents, would you like your children to be creative with technology instead of simply consuming digital devices?
Then bring them to one of our free workshops. No previous experience with computers is required, all kids from 7 to 14 years old are welcome.

We are a growing team of programmers, teachers and parents, passionate about code literacy. Our goal, as part of a worldwide movement, is to give every child the chance to learn programming.
Our first regular code club will be running weekly sessions at the International School. Starting clubs in all of the remaining schools is a challenge that will need a lot of goodwill.

We’ll be running one-off workshops on Saturday 28/9 at 2 and 4 p.m. as part of the Open Days at the Impactory. During the kid’s 1 hour session, parents can discover the Impactory’s co-working space and some of the impactful projects coming out of this great community.
The hardest part will be to get your kids to leave at the end – don’t worry, they can continue improving their game at home!

In our introductory workshops, we’re using Scratch to spark the kid’s passion for programming. With Code Club’s detailed instructions and this programming language designed specifically for children, they quickly get encouraging results.

If this sounds too good to be true, then come see for yourself! There’s a limited number of slots, so please make sure that you register!
