Wigan STEAM are launching a brilliant new Coding and Technology Group in January 2018 aimed especially for young people aged 13+ and adults interested in making, creating and discovering new technology.
The hugely popular monthly Code Up sessions have been expanded to run fortnightly, and include workshops as diverse as Python, Processing, Drone coding, 3D rendering and Electro paints. The sessions are free of charge to attend but as spaces and equipment are limited they need to be booked in advance – so book your places now.
This free session is a hands on introduction to the Python programming language. This session is designed for complete beginners to programming and will give you a perfect introduction to the glorious world of coding.
Please register if you want to attend this session so we can make sure we have enough resources…..and screens!
And polite note: Please only register if you definitely intend to show up – places are limited and we don’t want people who are genuinely keen to attend, to miss out.
