Join the Cape Town Science Centre’s Let’s Code programme – we will use the visual block programming software, Scratch, and nurture their 21st Century skills as they go about producing their game – imagine, explore, create! This is an excellent opportunity to acquire basic coding skills in a relaxed and creative environment – 15 hours of coding fun over a 5 day period and the opportunity to explore the rest of the Cape Town Science Centre’s offerings. Space is limited so please book ASAP. Participants are welcome to bring their own device (BYOD), but please alert us if you wish to do so to ensure we can successfully load the free Scratch programme onto your device.

Space is limited to 20 children per Camp and spaces will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. BOOK NOW to avoid disappointment! Please note we require a minimum of 10 kids to run the Camp.
