Free workshop for children aged 7- 17 to learn more about computer programming.

About this Event

Throughout the day, we’ll be running Coding Workshops covering topics such as Scratch, Web Development and SoundTrap. We have workshops that are suitable for complete beginners to advanced coders. These will take place in the computer labs of MU so you don’t need to bring a laptop with you.

Please take care in selecting workshops, and filling out the required information, as doing so incorrectly will make it harder for us to hold the required place and could result in places not being available.

Workshops:

We will have four sessions over the day at 9.45am, 11.00am, 1.30pm & 3.00pm . At the next stage, you will be able to select a workshop followed by a timeslot per person from the selection listed below. If your required workshop is greyed out in the session you are booking this means it is booked out and you will need to try another session.
