On Saturday 16th May the Studio hosted the fifth CoderDojo session in a series of coding workshops for young people aged 7 – 17.
The sold-out session invited young people from across Merseyside to attend and learn how to code in a variety of different coding languages. The workshops covered the basics of coding in C#, Java, Scratch, Construct and Unity, with children as young as 8 developing mods in Java to use at home.
Each coding class was hosted by current students at The Studio, who were able to use their skills and knowledge with the next generation of digital natives.
Learning Coach for Computing Mr Sillitoe attended the event and said:
“It’s inspiring to see my current students using the skills they have learnt at The Studio to teach the next generation of young people how to code. Being able to share such complex knowledge in a way that is easy to understand is not an easy task! We are extremely proud of our students for what they are achieving every month at CoderDojo.”
Tickets are now available for the next CoderDojo session at The Studio. Tickets are available to book directly through The Studio website.
