THIS CLUB HAS STARTED. NEXT CLUB STARTS IN SEPTEMBER 2023.
Learn to code with Loopie, our coding robot! Your child will learn to code in Python, which is an easy to learn, yet widely used coding language. Children will learn basic coding concepts such as algorithms, variables, printing, debugging, input command, and conditional if-else structure. Python will help with learning other coding languages in the future and is full of positive “Oh, this is how it works!” discovery moments.

SETTING UP is easy. Lessons are run via our integrated learning environment OLIO, which has a Zoom video link and code editor.
Access code to OLIO classroom will be sent by email a week prior to start of club. If you do not receive these instructions by then, please check your spam folder first. Contact us promptly if you still can’t find it and we’ll help you to set up. You can also find the download instructions HERE.
