Why Codebrite

There is no doubt that the future is digital. Codebrite, brought to you by Venture Centre, is a day long school holiday activity (January 17 and 18 2017) designed to support your children to thrive in the digital era. To go from consuming digital content and applications to making them!

Codebrite develops coding skills for children aged 9 to 14 with some or no previous experience with computer programming. It encourages creative, fun, collective learning in workshops running 9:30am till 4:00pm*

Focusing on core concepts critical to our children’s future – discovery of HTML, CSS and JavaScript – along with key collaboration and problem solving skills and tools, Codebrite introduces children to ways of working together. They will begin to make webpages, simple apps and games using Code Avengers and will have access to resources to continue learning and building independently.

Registration to a one-day workshop includes a 12-month Code Avenger Premium Account https://www.codeavengers.com/pricing

Code Avengers is the teaching resource of choice for Codebrite organiser - Venture Centre. Codebrite participants can use their Code Avengers account independently and at subsequent Codebrite series.

*please pack snacks, lunch and a drink – there will be regular breaks to feed the brain!

How it works

Codebrite combines learning-by-doing activities, expert facilitation and online resources to deliver a one-day experience where children activate their creative, collaborative and problem solving skills and learn to code by:

  • working together to generate ideas to build on
  • exploring a small selection of carefully selected basic concepts
  • learning to evaluate what tools to use to bring their idea to life
  • starting to build their idea
  • presenting what they have done at the ‘Show & Tell’ session that concludes the day (starts 3.30pm – all parents are welcome to attend)

You can bring your laptop or use one of the PCs provided.

If you bring your laptop it must be able to connect to the Wifi. We recommend you install Chrome as the web browser.

Who for?

Young people aged 9 to 14 who:

  • want to express themselves and create something using digital tools
  • want to develop real skills they need to succeed
  • want to start something they can continue to build on
  • need a constructive outlet to let their creativity and curiosity lose!
