Join us for coding in the holidays

Code Champions is running a two-day holiday course in the week before Christmas.

Location and dates:

  • Saint Kentigern Boys’ School: Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 December

Content: Each day will be different. The first will explore the coding that makes websites function. We’ll look at the coding languages HTML, CSS and JavaScript, the basics of how they work and combine together, and create some webpages. During the second day, the focus will be on ‘chatbots’, what they are and how they operate. We’ll code two chatbots, one using block code and, once they have the hang of it, a second using JavaScript. (If there’s any time at the end, we’ll take a quick peek at the Python coding language.)

Age: This course is designed for students in Years 4, 5 and 6.

Coding experience: This course will introduce the basic principles of HTML, CSS and JavaScript, and is suitable for anyone who has not already done a lot of web coding or built chatbots. Some knowledge of coding is always useful, but the content is designed to suit to a range of skills and experiences. The real challenge for those attending will be the level of detail and complexity they can achieve when creating using code.

Cost: The two-day course costs $215 (which includes the use of a computer and software during the two days).

Time: Sign in is at 9.15am, for a 9.30am start. We end at 3pm.

Place are limited. To book a spot or find out more please contact Greg Adams at info@codechampions.nz
