Coding sometimes has a bit of a reputation for being the preserve of the pale, bedroom dwelling teen boy but this image couldn't be further from the truth. Coding is a modern creative tool only limited by the imagination of the person using the computer.
At codetoday we encourage our students to get creative with code once they have learnt the basics. In fact that's our goal. We want to create self-sufficient coders who can bring their imagination to life, whether that's graphics, games, artificial intelligence or the next App awaiting global popularity.
As parents too this has always been important to codetoday, we value the soft skills students learn just as much as the coding language. It's these skills that really future proof our students, the ability to think logically, problem solve, collaborate and think creatively are universal. It's never certain where we'll end up in the years ahead but we do know technology will be a part of everyones' lives and the skills codetoday students learn ensure they will be on the right side of the future.
All the students that take a codetoday course are amazing, creative individuals. Here's some of the projects and work they undertake.
Students created this animated Christmas card in Python, in the run up to last Christmas.
Students explore object oriented coding on our courses.
Codetoday students created this amazing turtle screensaver.
This is just a snapshot of our students' capabilities. But, it clearly illustrates how the students are encouraged to bring their imaginations to life using code. Each codetoday instructor is well versed in helping students grow creatively with code. Spending time discovering their interests and encouraging them to use code as just another tool to enhance their enjoyment.
This summer sees one of our biggest ever course programmes for students aged 7-17. Introductory courses are the perfect stepping stone to developing a love of coding and building the skills to use another creative tool for life.
