Children's Activities

Code Club

We offer free coding opportunities in the library for young people aged 7-13 throughout the school year. Learn how to program simple games and animations using the block-based programming language Scratch. All coders start with the Scratch Basics course and build up their programming skills as they move through the different projects in their club. For more details visit the Coding Clubs page.
