FUZE Workshops consist of a full day’s coding activities, learning to code using a real text based programming language. Children from seven upwards get to code simple programs, control electronic circuits, interact with sensors and even code a robot arm. The activities are tailored to the individual’s ability level so each student will progress at their own pace. This allows us to cater for mixed aged groups and abilities.
FUZE coding workshops have a wealth of teaching material so multiple days provides extended learning, not repetition. Please feel free to book a second day to facilitate your child’s learning.
What you’ll get up to
Simple programming and debugging, leading to more advanced levels as they progress.
Playing with a robotic arm, leading to actually programming the device.
Coding a basic LED circuit leading to flashing strips of LEDs in sequence.
Interaction with a light sensor, leading to multiple sensors controlling images on screen.
Very basic game programming, leading to complete fully functioning games programming.
Drawing shapes on screen, leading to complex animated graphics and drawing.
Programming sounds leading to building a working touch sensitive synthesiser.
Using binary notation to redesign character graphics, leading to font design and text animation.
Learning about loops , leading to complex loops (FOR, WHILE, UNTIL).
Learning about variables, leading to manipulation numeric and text variables.
Learning about conditional statements, leading to IF THEN ELSE ENDIF controls.
The day starts at 9:00 and finishes at 3:30pm.
A packed lunch is required and adults are not required to stay with their children. This is a drop off, camp style event.
If there are any special requirements (SEN / ASD) please let FUZE know at point of booking.
