CodeCamp allows boys & girls to develop 21st century skills in a fun and action packed & agile environment. We help develop confidence & initiative through design, creativity, solving problems & collaboration.
Students get to create games, work with robots & drones as well as design, invent & create prototypes to solve real world problems with electronic building blocks.
Our Programmes – Suitable for Ages 7 – 12
Coding & robotics is a fun & engaging way to teach kids to become independent, computational thinkers and problem solvers. They don’t have to be engineers or programmers, but the objective of this programme is to help them understand how easy & fun it is to solve problems and empower them to create things.
For those students wanting to advanced into more serious coding or web development, we have text based coding courses designed to be fun and productive. Students will learn the fundamentals of HTML/CSS & a text based coding language. i.e. Python, Ruby or Swift.
Ahoy! My name is Flynn Lange, and I consider myself a long time computer geek! From when I was young, I always found myself fiddling with computers, pulling them apart, putting them back together and whatnot. I’ve broken a few things in my time, and I’ve also fixed a few things (woohoo!), which is why I have plonked myself at the University of Canterbury, studying Computer Science!
I’ve always been fond of children, as I’ve watched my three little girl cousins grow up just down the road from me! I love teaching them new things, but (unfortunately) they’re not too interested in coding, which is when I found myself here at CodeCamp, sharing my love for the science with the “wizards of tomorrow”.
Hello there! I’m also at the University of Canterbury studying Mechatronics Engineering! It’s a pretty new course and is a mixture of electrical, mechanical and software engineering – basically things like robots and automatic machines. I’ve been working in childcare since I was 15 so I have heaps of experience with kids and know how to keep them interested in what they’re doing. I have a very positive outlook and believe that if you’re not having fun at whatever you’re doing, then you’re not doing it right!
