Coding

We encourage everyone to get coding as it is such a useful modern skill. To this end we have laptops pre-loaded with Scratch and Python or you can access your own on-line accounts. We can also help you with HTML the language of the internet and web-sites.

We are members of Code Club and Coderdojo, so you can have access to their full resources (which include App development projects) and participate in their competitions.

Bring along your friends and whether you are coders or budding designers and musicians, together make a viable game or app. We will be encouraging you to enter coding competitions together.

We regularly run starter sessions, and if you are an experienced coder, we will help you transition to other languages or improve your current skills.

Our lead volunteers in this area are David Harper, an ex-Professor of computing science who also has experience of working with Google, and Gary Polhill who is a Data Research Analyst at the James Hutton Institute.
