Supporting British Science Week 2018 with free lessons in coding and computing
We are delighted to run a number of free classes in support of 2018’s British Science Week programme of activity and it’s a great way to get your school involved with British Science Week 2018.
Coding and programming is an integral aspect to so many science and STEM-related careers and these skills are key to this generation of school children’s future success.
FREE workshops are available for pupils or as FREE CPD sessions for teachers.
We come to you!
We come to your school to deliver the class to your pupils or your teaching staff. Alternatively, teachers from a school cluster can group together for a combined session at one school venue.
