Coding is the new cool! Highly creative, collaborative and good fun. Has your child ever had an awesome idea for a video game but didn’t know how to bring it to life?

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire basic coding skills in a relaxed and creative environment – 12 hours of coding fun over a 4 day period and the opportunity to explore the rest of the Cape Town Science Centre’s offerings.
A bit about Small Basic
Small Basic combines a friendly environment with a very simple language and a rich and engaging set of libraries to make your programs and games pop. In a matter of few lines of code, you will be well on your way to creating your very own game! With a new and revolutionary IntelliSense®, Small Basic makes writing code a breeze. Learn the programming concepts starting with the fundamentals and move your way up. Small Basic is based on .NET and what you learn here could be easily applied to other .NET programming languages like Visual Basic. And when you do graduate to Visual Basic, you can bring your existing programs with you using a built-in conversion utility.
