CODE CLUB: Introduction to programming
This session has been designed for new coders who have never been to a code club before as well as those who have completed the ‘scratchers’ group and want to take their first steps into a text-based language (python). We will be using the popular and extendable Micro:bit computer as the main learning tool. There is only one ticket type but you will be split into smaller groups depending on your level on experience, we look forward to another term full of challenges, bugs and more!
Can’t wait to get started?
You can access tutorials and resources online here:
What is Code Inverness?
We are here to support our young people in the Highlands get excited about technology, whether they are just getting started on their journey or working on their own apps/projects we try to include something for everyone.
If you are 13 or under, then please make sure a parent or guardian is with you. If you’re 13 or over, then we will ask for details of an emergency contact person if they are not staying. Each ticket must be booked by an adult on your behalf. Both you and your parent should familiarise yourselves with the Code of practice.
