Some time for the kids to be in the playground, play with their new friends and have a bite to eat.

We get to work on our first mini-game that involves a heap of new coding blocks! It's time to get creative and really make the level your own!
12:50pm - 1:30pm
Depending on the venue we'll have some handball and soccer games, or make use of other school equipment (skipping ropes, balls etc.). While we do want your kids to learn the incredible skills of tomorrow, we're big fans of outdoor fun too!

The afternoon session on day one is all about 'keys' and how our player can collect these to unlock new levels in our games!

The hardest part of the afternoon session is telling the kids they need to stop coding and go home!
