What will your child do?
You can choose how many days you would like your child to attend. The more time your child spends on our workshops, the more they will cover. Below is a list of the activities, equipment and programs we use throughout our workshops. It is by no means definitive. In one day your child is likely to cover at least one coding project and one film-making project.*
Your child can expect to cover some of these activities whilst on our workshops:
– learn how to create their own Minecraft/Roblox games and worlds using block coding**
– learn how to remix games on Scratch leading to children creating their own programmed games.
– design, create and publish their own retro video game.
– program a Sphero robot to carry out instructions.
-use mosaic tiles to re-create a character from Minecraft, Roblox or another educational game.
-learn about pixels and create a Minecraft mask online and then in real life.
– plan, film, act-out, choreograph and edit a movie trailer which can then be emailed to parents.
– design and shoot their very own movie posters which can also be emailed out to parents.
What we can guarantee is that no matter how many days your child attends, they’ll learn lots about coding and film-making in a fun and educational environment.
Children should not expect to be simply playing Roblox or Minecraft games throughout our workshops. They will be expected to complete coding challenges within a Roblox or Minecraft world.
And we’re committed to ensuring children understand how to stay safe online which not only includes how they interact with others on the Internet but how and when to take breaks away from the screen. We also promote the use of ‘unplugged’ coding activities which encourage computational thinking without the use of a screen.
*We know that some children will want to spend more time learning about coding than film-making and vice versa. Whilst we would like every child to try both the coding and film-making projects, we also want them to enjoy themselves on our workshops. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that your child will complete both types of projects.
**Please ensure your child is aware that they will not be playing the Minecraft or Roblox game all day during the workshop. We use the platforms to set challenges for the children to complete.
