Ever since I established First Class Coders, several years ago, I have always sought out creative, collaborative opportunities.
The more First Class Coders can work with other community and grass roots organisations, the more reach we have, the more we can make our vision and approach of accessible and inclusive coding and robotics courses for children possible.
We are fortunate to work with community groups, organisations and schools that share our vision for creative, accessible, diverse computer science education for all. We are empowering children and families with 21st-century skills for a brighter future.
The Covid-19 pandemic, gave us a wider reach as we deliver coding classes online to children in Canada, Germany, Holland, India and U.S.A and to name but a few. And over the summer we will be extending our reach again with community coding workshops.
We are delighted to be working with the Manor Park Friends Group, supported by the Mayor of London to enhance outdoor play through coding. Manor Park is 'Sutton's back garden' and Manor Park Friends Group are bringing the community together again to deliver safe and healthy outdoor activities.
With the restriction easing, we have begun exploring how children can actually learn to code whilst exploring nature and open spaces - combining tech and nature to create something new.
We are bringing coding education to life with Mini Beast Mayhem, A Wriggle and a Jiggle and Hide and Seek in the park.
They will explore coding and computational thinking practices as they utilise technology as a tool for creativity, expression and learning.
We look forward to seeing more children, families and grown ups Play, Code and Grow with us!
