This year on the fourth week of January, MADVentures held four action packed days of Codebrite and Learn-to-Code tasters in Tauranga, Te Puke, and Katikati. And with 62 participating children and 83% saying they love coding even more after these workshops, you could say that these days met great success!
So where are the facts?
- Almost a third of participants were girls, the future of coding is changing!
- Nearly half of the children do not learn coding at school even though they all enjoying learning it.
- 40% of these participants said that they think they would learn more about coding from home. The rest prefered learning in groups at school or in a club.
Fortunately, there are free Code Clubs at the Greerton library, CodingNZ held after school, and Codebrite in the holidays. But along with this, Venture Centre is currently working on organizing a frequent programme for homeschooled children to continue coding on a weekly basis in Tauranga CBD.
The name of this programme is CodebriteTT (Term Time) and it starts Monday 12 March and runs for five consecutive weeks on Mondays from 9:45am to 11:00am, at Basestation 148 Durham Street Tauranga, and is $115.
