Your child can learn to code with Coding Kids. Join our in-school coding classes, after-school coding clubs, school holiday code camps or professional development for educators.
Students build computer games, program robots, and design animations in a fun, authentic learning environment. Learning to code fosters a growth mindset because the learning process requires students to have a go and learn from mistakes.
Through digital projects, students learn computational thinking, algorithmic thinking, logic, problem solving, maths, computer programming concepts, graphic design and user experience. In the process, they create a tangible product using technology. Coding Kids focuses on technology creation not technology consumption. Digital literacy is as vital as traditional literacy and numeracy.
Listen to an interview of Emily de la Pena (creator of Coding Kids) on 612 ABC Radio Brisbane as she talks about why it is important to learn how to code.
Bring Coding Kids to your school.

With the introduction of the Digital Technologies subject being rolled out into Queensland primary schools, I’ve kept rather busy running professional development works for teachers, in order to help them better understand some of the technologies that they will be teaching in classes. Most recently, I ran a couple of workshops for second year students doing their Master’s degree in Education at QUT, at the invitation of Dr. Vinesh Chandra, a senior lecturer in STEM Education.
As part of the Department of Education and Training's STEM Girl Power Camp, tomorrow (October 18th), Loganlea State High School will be hosting the 2017 STEM Girl Ambassador Conference! The day will feature a number of engaging workshops with three inspirational and respected figures across a variety of STEM fields.
If you're you're a female student at Loganlea State High School, and you are interested in science, maths, engineering or technology, then come along for a day of STEM-related fun!
The Fun Palace is a free annual and worldwide celebration of art and science. Every year, it takes place over the first weekend in October. In Queensland, the State Library of Queensland (SLQ), as well as other council libraries around the state, will be running Fun Palace events on 7-8 October. This year, SLQ will be transformed into a dedicated wonderland of scientific inquiry and creativity, as art and science collide. Come along and join the fun!
We look at how to integrate Digital Technologies & History into your Year 4 classroom with a unit on “Convict Crime & Punishment”.
Coding is just like baking a cake. We look at the six fundamental concepts of coding — sequencing, looping, branching, arithmetic, data storage, and data in/data out — in the context of baking a cake.
This year's Robotronica at the Queensland University of Technology revealed some of the latest developments and trends within the field of robotics. Elnaz gives her account of the event, where she bore witness to a variety of demonstrations, workshops, games, and discussions that were informative, inspiring, and surprising in many ways!
Digital literacy is becoming as vital as traditional literacy and numeracy and Thursday Island school students are being introduced to robotics and coding to address this issue.
Primary and secondary school students, as well as members of the public, were given the opportunity to explore, play and learn about coding and robotics over a two-day workshop a couple of weeks ago organised by the Torres Shire Council.
Compared to a lot of other programming languages, Scratch has quite a gentle learning curve. Still, getting started can be a little bit of a doozy if you’ve had zero prior experience with the kind of terminology used in programming. To help you out a bit, we’ve compiled a glossary of terms for new Scratchers!
Save $363 and get ready for 2018! Book now for early bird prices for full-day Teacher PD workshops by 31 October. Get your school ready for Digital Technologies in 2018 and be on your way to full implementation by 2020.
What are lists?
To give you the short answer, lists are places where you can store information, just like variables. However, there is one key difference between lists and variables; variables can only store one piece of information at a time, whereas lists can store multiple bits of information at a time.
exploration + creativity
Focus is on play and exploration, not work. Children are engaged because coding unleashes imagination.
Create games you can play
Coding Kids has tangible results from day 1. Children can share their games and creations with friends and family.
Our tutors are passionate about coding and excited to share their knowledge with the next generation.
