Learn new skills

In this changing world understanding how computers and code actually work is an amazing skill for children to have!

We will teach club participants the basics of the Unity development platform and coding with C#.

Using a practical outcome based learning (make a computer game!) is a great way to engage and help kids learn.

It will also surprise and challenge many kids just how important core learning areas such as maths and english come into play once they start to code!
