Two days down, two to go

Two days done and another enjoyable day’s coding. We did something a little bit different this afternoon (especially after everyone’s been working so hard), and our tutor Tanya gave a short presentation about her work with Artifical Intelligence. 

It was fascinating and hopefully our young coders will benefit from seeing programming in a real-world, and cutting edge environment. However, (perhaps inspired) they were still keen to get back to their own coding for the last hour!!

Some places are still available on our holiday programme next week

kai-39-s-clan_inside2Our holiday programme takes place next week, from Monday (30 September) to Thursday (3 October) at Churchill Park School in Glendowie.

From astronauts to secret agents, join us for four days of awesome activities, including a Mission on Mars, designing a computer game, and protecting the world’s data from hackers! (If you can’t make all four, there may be availability to book for fewer days,)

There are a few spots still available. If you’d like to join us, you can find out more at codechampions.nz/term3holiday/

Or contact Greg Adams at info@codechampions.nz for further information.

We’re done for coding in Term 3

That’s it for coding in Term 3.  Tuesday’s class at Churchill Park School was the last of the term.

Thanks to everyone who coded with use. We hope you enjoyed the term’s activities and challenges.

Welcome back! Term 3 kicks off

Welcome back everyone! Term 3 is a go and it’s great to get coding again.

We’re delighted to be returning to Meadowbank School, as well as continuing at St Heliers School, Kohimarama School, Churchill Park School, Saint Kentigern Boys’ School and Saint Kentigern College.

glendowie school logoThe plan is to start an introductory course at Glendowie School later this term. if you’re interested in joining this – or coding with us at any of our schools – contact Greg Adams at info@codechampions.nz

While you’re here, check out all the action from our Holiday Programme. And why should we teach kids to code? In a recent article School Principal Mike Hansen explains.

We hope our young coders enjoy the term ahead. It looks like our Meadowbank School group got off to a great start!
