We'll bring coding to your school, your way, hassle free.

We know how to teach kids to code

We love working with #kidswhocode of all ages, and support teachers that want to get kids coding. Find the option that suits below, or get in touch to talk to us about a customized approach for your school.

hands_on_coding_microbits

All of our professional development courses are hands on and practical - we leave you ready to code, with the skills and resouces you need to get started. We're not affiliated with any particular hardware or software providers so can give you impartial advice based on three years of teaching, and after hearing about how you want to code at your school. We allow plenty of time for questions and our friendly follow up support means even the question you remember the next morning gets answered.

We embrace a CS+X approach, or 'coding to learn'. This means we're not teaching coding for the sake of coding - we're teaching coding to explore our world, to solve problems, and to create digital content that's meaningful, relevant and has context. This opens students' eyes to a world of possibilities and discovery, and can even take you around the world.

Classroom Coding

 Our teachers can come to you and deliver weekly, fortnightly or one off coding classes. We can offer coding classes for students from stage 2 to 5. We'll tailor our classes to support your students and their other learning areas, and invite your teachers to attend and learn alongside the students.

Incursions

Incursions are a fabulous way to get all of your students coding in a fun, emmersive environment. Full and half day coding workshops will see students develop a digital animation or game, website or quiz that can be saved and shared with friends or family.

STEM clubs and after school programs 

Our after school programs have an emphasis on fun and discovery. We encourage collaboration, team work, and fun hands on learning to spark an interest in coding and all things STEM. We can help you get your STEM club up and running, or do the heavy lifting and run a full program at your school.
