While they might be tempted to spend the Easter holidays hunting for, and scoffing, chocolate eggs, kids from 8 to 18 could spend a few days learning to code with York Maker Hub. It’ll definitely be better for their teeth (and their brains)!
York Maker Hub’s popular coding sessions are back and this Easter, children will learn to code, create and build something they wouldn’t have thought possible in a fun, easy environment. Beginners will get to grips with Scratch or learn how to program and wire up the circuit for a line following vehicle, while those with more knowledge can discover the possibilities with a BBC Micro:bit. Other activities to choose from include creating a stop motion animation, learning a new programming language and building and programming a Lego Mindstorm EV3 robot. All hardware is provided, and there are technical gurus on hand to help.
The course dates are as follows:
- 10th April to 13th April
- 18th April to 21st April
- Core hours are 9am to 3:45pm (free drop off from 8:15am) and you can choose from morning, afternoon, full day or full week sessions.
All sessions take place at Huntington School. York Maker Hub are also taking bookings for the spring half term and summer holidays.
