Free hands-on coding workshops for children will be held in Clevedon next week.

The workshops will take place from Monday and will run every day until July 31 at the Curzon cinema in Old Church Road, where primary and secondary schoolchildren will have the opportunity to create interactive stories, games and apps.

The project is being run by Coding Bug, an organisation which promotes coding among young people, and is sponsored by Sparkol, a software development company based in Kenn Road.

A spokesman for Coding Bug said: “Children love playing games on any device that they can get their hands on but few children are using their electronic devices to create their own games or tinker with the technology.

“Attendees will grasp the basics of computer programming and computational thinking, and get inspired to be creators, rather than simply consumers, of the technology.”

Activities that children can take part in include creating a mobile app with JavaScript, coding an Angry Birds-style game and learning how to animate stories.
