Summer 2019 @ Malahide community school
Learning to code or honing existing skills - the Academy of Code is the summer camp for both motivated newbies and seasoned coders.
Open to students aged 8-18 (primary and secondary groups), tutors at the Academy of Code deliver a course which blends fun games and puzzles with serious programming. Students are divided by age and coding experience.
CODE CAMP (Primary)
Scratch - a fantastic introductory language, especially for younger students
Processing - a Java-based graphical language. The basis for most of our term-time courses, and a fantastic introduction to coding (students who have studied at the Academy of Code previously will get the chance to work on advanced Processing projects)
HTML/CSS - learn to build and edit websites using HTML and CSS
Lego Mindstorms, Python, Arduino and more
TASTE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE (Secondary)
This course, aimed at 13 to 18-year-old students, is the perfect opportunity to get a feeling for what a 3rd level course in computer science is really like.
Taste of Computer Science is divided into junior (13- to 15-year-olds) and senior (16- to 19-year-olds) classes, so that students will have the opportunity to work and mingle with others their own age.
