School holiday coding camps - Think Ahead

A great way to keep the children busy during the holidays. Take them to coding camps at  iStore at 1 Sandton Drive. Miss Fine went on her first #GirlCodeFriday coding camp on Friday. She enjoyed it so much, and wants to go to all the days of tech camps.

Swift is Apple's coding language, which is used in over 250 000 apps on the App store. There are FutureSpace experiences for Grade 1-3, Grade 4-7 and Grade 8-10. The coding workshops are from 9:00-13:00 each day. We have a distance and working parents issue, or else we would have been there every day. Next holiday I will definitely make better plans to get her there.

The #GirlCodeFriday course that Miss attended and the next dates it is going to be available:
#GirlCodeFriday:   13 July | 17 August  |  31 August

Beginner - Learn to code your own game
