Have you ever wondered how computers work? Take part in our first offline session to find out. Code or play along, to learn the basics about how to control computers by guiding your 'robot' through a maze.

Making melodies

12 June 2019

Music was our first love. It can be yours too with this fun session to help introduce music into your Scratch coding. Code along to create a simple melody as well as learning how to create your own tunes as well.

Functional functions

18 September 2019

Can you help the cat to catch the mouse? We look at ways to make your coding more efficient by creating custom blocks, or functions. These blocks help you to not repeat yourself when coding will make your projects easier to fix, or debug, if they go wrong.
