A SUMMARY

Hello again! After an awesome half-term run of workshops, some just for girls, at the BA i360 in Brighton, we're running a day of coding workshops at the Eequ Easter Learning Festival located at Michael Hall school in Forest Row! ***************************************************** Genius Brighton coding workshops will be giving a simple two-hour introduction to the concepts of Hacking using the Python programming language. For ages 9 and up. The world of work is changing fast. How can we know which specific skills our children are likely to need when they grow up? We can't. What we CAN do is equip them with the ability to teach themselves, to think critically, to solve problems and analyse data rationally. That's what learning to code is all about. This workshop is all about curiosity, trying things out, picking things apart and putting them back together. In a word - hacking. In this short two-hour session you'll get a fast introduction to one of the most important programmi...

About your Mentor

Andrew

Hi - I'm Andrew, and I run Genius Brighton educational workshops. You might know us from our Venture Coders workshops. I'm a working scientist - a physicist - working in geophysics and data science. I've been running workshops like this, in and around Brighton, for children since around 2015. I also tutor maths, physics and coding privately. Our workshops are all about developing the skills our children will need in the future - it's not about creating a generation of computer scientists! We want to create a generation of children that have the skills to follow their passion wherever it takes them, without feeling restricted by a rigid education. That means having the confidence to learn new things, to solve problems, to not be afraid to dive into something new. This, more than anything else, is what you'can expect from our workshops.

Learning aims

You'll learn what hacking is all about, and how the hacking you hear about in the media is only a part of the story!

Strengths to develop

We're teaching you to have confidence in your own ability to solve problems that appear to be really complicated at first. You'll be amazed at what you can do, if you take it slowly, and break a problem down into small pieces!
