Computing skills are intrinsically linked to science and on British Science Week digital day (Friday 11 March) education technology specialist and with the support of the Microsoft Educator Community ComputerXplorers will be delivering free Kodu sessions for children and CPD sessions as part of its annual Programming for Primaries awareness event.
ComputerXplorers established Programming for Primaries two years ago to shine the spotlight on resources available to help teachers introduce primary school age children to coding and we're delighted to be supporting them once again as they join forces with British Science Week.
Any initiative that educates children in the exciting application, depth and breadth of coding applications in the real world has got to be a good thing. Programming for Primaries helps make coding relevant and interesting to children today, so that they will understand what they can do with it in the lives they lead tomorrow.
FREE children's workshops and CPD sessions for teachers are available in areas of Kent, London, Bristol, Bath, Birmingham, Thames Valley, the Cotswolds, Surrey, Oxfordshire, Yorkshire, Scotland and South Wales. Places are filling up fast. For more information go to www.computerxplorers.co.uk
