Computer Science Unplugged

Learning to code is about learning a method to communicate instructions and to sequence them to generate a result. We have lots of ways to keep this fun, humorous and positive as children learn about the design process and write codes on paper.  Workshop is aimed at children aged 7- 12. The intention is for children to work with their parents. This is not intended as a drop off workshop.
