Games Coding 4 Kids (ages 8-12)

from £245Per Child

Games Coding 4 Kids is a computer coding workshop for children aged 8-12 during which they will design and code a variety of complete computer games using a games controller.

Kids aged 8-12 of all abilities are welcome, from beginners (who have never written a line of code) all the way through to kids who have prior coding experience. Children who have attended this workshop in the past can attend again if they enjoyed it the last time: we tailor the coding challenges to build upon topics covered in previous sessions (please indicate previous attendance in booking notes).

This is an all-inclusive workshop, with Spark4Kids providing everything from the software and hardware that the children will use, to lunch and healthy snacks – just drop your child off in the morning, and pick them up at the end of the fun-filled, workshop day.

Activities

On this workshop, children write code using either a gaming controller or a keyboard (whichever they prefer), manipulating visual elements on-screen to construct each game. A multitude of game objects are available for use when designing games.

This practical hands-on course, takes the child through painting landscapes and worlds, manipulating the camera and on-screen objects on various terrains, performing collision-detection, zooming in-and-out, camera-orbiting, firing missiles, detecting and avoiding enemy fire, score-keeping and health-tracking to name a few.

The workshop is designed to keep the kids engaged throughout the day. There will be sufficient breaks to ensure that the children spend some time away from the computer and weather permitting, there will also be breaks outdoors.

The focus is on creating a fun and supportive environment in which children learn about various aspects of technology and coding.

 

 

Food and Snack Breaks

All children on all-day workshops will be offered lunch. Children may also bring in a packed lunch if they have special dietary requirements. Healthy snacks and refreshments will be available throughout the day.

Children booked on the Extended Day option (not available on all workshops) will be offered breakfast on arrival.

Each workshop day will be punctuated with breaks to ensure that the children take time away from computers/computer coding. Short walks and trips outdoors will be taken, however this will be dependent on the weather.

 

Discounts

We offer sibling discounts for families with more than one child enrolled with Spark4Kids. The discount is 10% off the second child’s fees and 5% off any additional sibling’s fees thereafter.

Children looking to have double sessions during term-time are also offered a 10% discount off the second hour of the session.

Discounts are automatically applied during the booking process, but only if all courses are included in the same shopping basket, and paid for at the same time.

Discounts do not apply if sessions for siblings or other multiple sessions are not booked and paid for in one transaction.
