Come and meet our friendly staff, have fun programming and eat cake. You can even bring a young person with you as a programming buddy. (Your buddy can be a family member, friend or pupil).
The focus will be on learning how to use a visual block-based programming language and strategies for using this with Second level learners in a fun, creative way with minimal stress and maximum enjoyment. Computing Science outcomes will be covered by creating cartoon animations, scripting shapes and then using repetition to draw Spirograph-style art.
This fun and lively course will give you an opportunity to explore with colleagues the challenges of introducing and expanding the computing science experiences for learners in your school.
