Led by Dr Amanda Ford, one of the Colleges Computing Lecturers, with support from colleague Sean Ward, the club ran over three days from the Colleges Paisley campus. The children got the opportunity to use tools such Scratch, Twine and Microbit, to learn more about coding and show off their creative side. They made games and animations with Scratch, music with the Microbits and created interactive choose your own adventure stories via Twine.

Amanda said, “The coding club was a huge success. It was fantastic to see the children embracing the programmes, learning new skills, and having fun along the way.

‘Choose your own adventure via Twine was by far the most popular day. The children loved having the freedom to be creative. We invited the parents along on the last day for 30 minutes so that their children could show-off what they had been working on.

‘Thanks to Digital Xtra for funding the project.”
