Computer Wizards- Mixed Digital Skills: THE class for all interested in learning how to do all sorts of things with a computer! Each session starts with some keyboard skills, and most have an element of working with presentations (so we can document what we’re doing). Apart from that, each term will have a focus: Term 1: 2D graphics including creating and ordering a printable design (to be agreed with participants – mug, T-Shirt, blank notebook…). Term 2: 3D graphics including creating and ordering a printable 3D model. Term 3: Micro:Bit – program your own mini device for games, displays, experiments and more. Aimed at techies and creative people alike. (And useful for school.) €115 per term (includes printables / Micro:Bit)
Scratch 1 – Introduction to Coding: Using the free visual programming language Scratch, participants will learn how to make their own small animations and games. Emphasis is on exploratory learning and creativity. €100 per term.
Scratch Projects: Advanced Scratch For everyone who knows Scratch pretty well and is ready to take it to the next level. Participants are expected to work on one major project of their own choice per 9-week term. There will also be weekly challenges to loosen the creative muscles! €100 per term.
Introduction to Programming with Python: We’ll make our way slowly but surely through the basics of the versatile programming language that is Python. The participants will get a solid grounding over the three terms, moving from understanding data and objects to using Python to create our own graphics and user interfaces. €100 per term.
Intermediate Python Programming: Building on the concepts of the Introduction to Python course, participants will develop more complex projects. Term 1: Graphics and games. Terms 2 and 3: To be agreed in class, possibly dealing with data and information visualization, or (if preferred) more complex games. €100 per term.
Keyboard Skills / Touch Typing: An extremely useful skill to have, and the earlier you learn, the better! Bit by bit, participants will learn to type without looking at the keyboard. €75 per term.
Minecraft Club: Junior: Play on our own server. Get insights into how the game works and what you can do. Share your experiences – and have fun!
