Summer Scratch Workshops – Coming Soon

Another popular event this summer will be our Scratch workshops. These will be aimed at both children starting out with coding as well as more advanced sessions for people who are comfortable with Scratch and wish to develop their skills further. The dates have nearly been finalised but in the meantime take a look at this rainy animation built in… yep you guessed it. Scratch! All the visuals were processed in Scratch as well as the sound effects and the slowed piano notes making for a very relaxing animation.

 

Aardman Animations

First Coding would like to share some great news with you all!

We have a year 8 pupil who is fanatical about animation and coding. This summer he worked on a complicated interactive animation built in Scratch and designed a web page around it to really show it off. We then sent it through to Aardman and last week one of their creative directors wrote the loveliest reply…

I think he has done brilliantly! To do ALL that, and at the age of 12, is fantastic! He has a long and exciting career ahead of him, he can go in any direction he chooses, and to be so dedicated at such a young age is wonderful to see. Well done, I look forward to what he creates next!

This is a great example of how children can unlock their potential through creative coding.
