Book one of our new coding workshops for your school - led by real app and game developers - designed to inspire and educate!Now booking for 2019/2020!
We run Chaos Created Code Workshops for Primary and Secondary school pupils, and we can help teachers get to grip with programming too. We teach the fundamentals of coding, teaching pupils real world programming skills! We have workshops for all age groups and experience levels. We run workshops teaching coding for apps and games, and we also run workshops for the new BBC micro:bit where we work with pupils to code for the Internet of Things. We also have an Introduction to Coding Workshop for younger pupils too!
We are app and games developers ourselves, with two of our games featured on BBC Click, meaning your students get a coding workshop from industry professionals. Our workshops include the source code, supporting materials, and follow-up support.
BBC micro:bit Workshop
For pupils aged 9 - 16
Our BBC micro:bit Workshop teaches your class about the micro:bit, making some apps and games with them during the workshop (we bring our own micro:bits too if your school doesn't yet have any!). We’ll introduce them to MakeCode, the coding language that the micro:bit uses, and teach them the fundamentals of coding before we work on some really fun projects! For older students, we can even use Python with the micro:bit!
Coding Games Workshop
For pupils aged 7 - 16
Our Coding Games Workshop teaches the basics of coding and game development. We'll teach coding fundamentals with a very practical workshop, giving pupils plenty of hands-on time with code. We will then work on a mobile game with your class, uploading the game to the app stores so the pupils can show off to their family and friends when they get home!
For pupils aged 10 - 16
Our new Python Workshop is great for teaching coding fundamentals through a real-world programming language. We will use Python (a programming language used by companies such as Google and NASA) to teach coding basics! During the workshop, we will learn how to use Python’s loops, conditional programming, and more, to build some really cool projects including interactive quizzes, a two-player game, and Python-based micro:bit apps including a working spirit level and more!
Introduction to Coding Workshop
For pupils aged 6 - 9
Our new Introduction to Coding workshop is a great way to get pupils started with code. Using visual programming tools such as Scratch, Kodu, and Minecraft HoC, we'll teach the fundamentals behind coding, and begin to look at how pupils can write their own apps and games. This is an extremely accessible workshop, suitable for all ages as an introduction to programming.
Getting Started with Website Design and Development
For pupils aged 14+
We also offer TEACHER TRAINING on coding too!We can help teachers get to grips with coding, and provide projects for them to teach to their classes!
Teaching Coding in Schools
Could your pupils be future programmers and innovators? Teaching children coding is becoming more commonplace in UK primary schools and, when taught correctly, it can be extremely engaging, teaching computer science, maths, social skills, teamwork, and problem solving in a relatable way.
The thought of teaching your pupils computer programming probably sounds rather daunting. But we are doing it right now, all around the country, with our Chaos Created Code Workshops. They’re a fantastic way to introduce computer coding to primary school pupils, and secondary school pupils, and there are additional benefits for SEN pupils, and those with Behavioural or Mental Health Difficulties.
Teaching coding puts children in control of the computer and lets them turn into reality the amazing and creative ideas they have, whilst mastering concepts such as logic and consequences. At the same time, skills learnt during programming workshops and coding sessions carry over into other subjects, and likewise the reverse is true. Maths, for example, is critical to programming, and artistic and design skills play a massive part too! Likewise, teamwork, and social skills can be developed through coding – we’ve seen pupils who wouldn’t typically get along, bond over their love of videogames and create some really interesting and creative work!
