Come let your kids make computer games not just play them
Computer coding is a valuable skill to have, used in many industries the demand for tech-savvy workers has never been higher. If you have kids who love technology (and what child doesn't these days?) these coding classes might be the perfect activity to keep them entertained after school.
Let your kids learn a valuable skill in the coding club
Taking place until 26th February 2018 is the coding club especially for children. This is the perfect after-school activity taking place from 4pm until 5pm at Forum Library in Wythenshawe. This is the chance for your children to learn how to make the computer games and not just play them! The interactive course teaches kids the coding skills necessary to build websites and create amazing animations. This is a skill many adults would love to have and it may be something that your child decides to learn more about in the future.
The skills taught on the course are not just fun but relevant to today's society. The tech industry is booming and there is currently a skills shortage of people who understand and can use computer coding languages. The skills learnt at the library may help your child in their future career. Also with tech being used more and more in everyday life, it is helpful and useful to know how it works. The course teaches children how to understand and use coding languages in a simple and fun way.
The classes are for children aged 8-11. Coding courses cost a fortune for adults these days but thankfully these classes are free for children. This is a great activity for them to get involved with whilst not costing parents a lot of money. The course takes place every Monday and you can call 0161 227 3770 to book. Please note it is advisable to book a place as this is a popular class.
The classes are run by Code Club who are a national network of volunteer-led coding clubs. They aim to provide free coding classes for children. A lot of the courses run from libraries but they also provide education in schools and community centres. With around 6,203 Code Clubs around the UK, this is a popular activity and over 86,000 children are currently enrolled onto one of the programmes. Why not let your child join in and learn a new skill from this dedicated team.
Contact Forum Library to find out more information and let your child get involved with an after school activity which will broaden their knowledge of technology.
