Meet and Code at 1st Wallheath Scouts

In support of the EU Coding week you can come and join us for our free coding sessions at the Wall Heath Scouts HQ.  This year is the “Microbit Challenge”!

These sessions are aimed at 8-16 years olds who already have experience of coding using tools like Scratch and would like to move to the next level of programming.

Last years Meet and Code session was a great success. This year we have received a donation of 10 Micro:bit machines and we will use them to develop programs using a simple scratch type interface and more complex Javascript and Python programming. We will develop these in the scouts own dedicated computer room and we will be issuing small prizes for the most creative use of the Micro:bit!

Each participant will be given access to a computer and a Micro:bit. We can comfortably cater for up-to 10 people in each session.

The sessions will take place between 6:30pm and 8:30pm on October 8th, 9th, 15th and 16th. 

These sessions are primarily aimed at the 8-16 year old age group, but will also be encouraging young leaders (16+) to take part and become trainers themselves. The event is open to the whole community and already has interest from students at schools in the local area.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take part in the EU Code week, learn new skills and maybe win a prize. Registration will open soon so keep checking back for more details.
