Did you know, incredibly, the first computer programming language was created in 1883?
A female mathematician called Ada Lovelace worked with Charles Babbage on his very early mechanical computer, the Analytical Engine, which was unfortunately never completed. Unlike modern computers, it was programmed using punched cards.
Lovelace wrote an algorithm for the Analytical Engine that was the first of its kind, so she’s therefore credited with creating the first computer programming language. As different needs have arisen and new devices have been created, many more languages have followed.
Today, coding is one of the most valuable skills a child can learn.
Ideal for strengthening their reasoning and logic skills, it’s brilliant for honing their problem solving abilities.
With our coding workshops for beginners, it’s fun and easy to pick up these types of skills. We enable children to learn programming and coding through the medium of computer games. Our courses have several levels so that children can slowly strengthen their abilities.
The first level is Scratch which is a program used by many schools across the UK. Each week, kids get to design a new game and work through our own bespoke worksheets. They will work using a block colour coding approach and enjoy high quality online hosted lessons.
Game Creators also offer virtual holiday clubs that are ideal for keeping kids entertained.
