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.

It’s 2017, and the new Digital Technologies subject is now starting to be introduced into Queensland schools, with full implementation of the subject expected to happen in 2020. The Digital Technologies subject is not a standalone subject: it is to be integrated into existing subject areas, such as English, Math, and Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS), among other areas.Let's have a look at how to integrate the Digital Technologies subject into other subjects for Years 4, 5 and 6.
GameMaker Studios is a game development environment that targets those who are interested in game development, but don't know where to get started, or don't have the technical expertise to make it a reality. Become a Game Maker in 2 days these school holidays!
Coding Kids is working with Noosa Library Services and Sunshine Beach State High School to deliver coding workshops for students, teachers and parents during National Science Week next week.
We are in Kingaroy and Nanango this week visiting schools and delivering free coding workshops for everyone. Coding is a force for change in this world and I am really looking forward to showing young children that they too can create digital solutions for the community, and helping teachers integrate the digital technologies into the classroom.
Over the course of four days, our kids at Bulimba State School partook in the MicroMakers Holiday Code Camp. There, they learned all about the basics of coding: they learned how to make games with Scratch, and how to enhance the experience of gaming by turning everyday objects like fruits and lollies into interactive consoles!
Python is a simple, readable programming language. Did you know that you can embed Digital Technologies into Year 5 Science and Year 6 English with projects built in Python? Emily first shared these projects at PyCon - Python in Education Seminar in Melbourne, 4 August 2017.
Variables are so important becuasse they allow us to hold a bit of information in a 'container' so that it an be editted and used multiple times in our code. Come check out how to use them in Scratch and find out more about the ins and outs of variables!
You may have seen the terms variables and data types being thrown around here and then, but what exactly do they mean? Why do you keep hearing about them? How are they relevant to Scratch? Let's find out!
This was the first term for Coding Kids at Corinda State School. Previously we had been delivering coding workshops as part of their Super Saturday events every term since early 2016. It's great to now be a part of the school community every week. As all schools do, we finished the eight week program of Coding Kids with the class Demo Day.
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.
