Coding is a basic literacy in the digital age. It is important for kids to not only be users of technology but also creators of it. Having children learn coding at a young age prepares them for the future. Coding helps children with communication, creativity, math, writing and confidence. While some schools do offer coding, it is not officially included in the curriculum in Primary School level at this stage.

The Cape Town Science Centre has been the Global Coordinator of Africa Code Week from 2016 to 2018 and implemented many coding workshops during the school holidays. Based on the demand for these workshops and the feedback received, it is clear IT IS TIME to offer this highly relevant, engaging and fun activity as an after-school programme at our centre!

Building on our experience, we offer interaction with a selection of coding platforms – a candy shop full of exciting programmes to explore – think Scratch, Python, Small Basics, Stencyl, App Development and unplugged workshops. Our programme has been evaluated by a leading educational specialist and builds a solid coding foundation promoting a deeper understanding of technology to catapult your child on an exciting coding learning journey!

Importantly, we invite your child to meet their tribe at the Cape Town Science Centre and be part of a community of kids who come together and play to learn.
