Code Club (Skelmersdale)

Saturday, 24 November 2018 from 10:30 – 12:00

Coding Club is aimed at children aged 9 – 13 years (Parental consent required*),
but we are happy for younger children to come along and have a go, if they have good computer skills.

Come along to the library to learn how to code.

Learning to code is an important skill now we’re living in a digital age. It’s
not just enough for children to know how to use technology. They should know
how it works and how to build it too.

Learning to code doesn’t just mean you can become a developer – it strengthens
problem solving and logical thinking skills, and is useful for a range of other
disciplines, careers and hobbies. The sessions are really informal & fun!

  • Coding      is fun
  • Coding      is creative
  • Coding      is empowering

In this ‘digital age’, children spend an awful lot of their time with video games, computers and devices. But, they are only passively consuming digital technology. With coding, they take control, literally creating their own entertainment and learning how digital technology ‘ticks’ in the process.

  • Coding      helps thinking
  • Coding      helps learning
  • Coding      helps problem solving
  • Coding      helps employability

*Please note that an adult is needed to accompany the child to the first session in order to complete the registration.

This event is free, but booking is required. Numbers are limited so book a place now.
