Computer Science for Children

COMPUTER SCIENCE
SUMMER ACADEMY

Join our fun and innovative Computer Science Academy courses for 7-13 year olds this summer in locations around Ireland.

To develop bright minds


At Future Learning, we believe that it is important to educate young learners on the different branches of Computer Science as technology becomes an integral part of their everyday lives.

In our courses we give children a glimpse into what is behind computing technologies, helping them to develop an understanding of the fundamental Computational Thinking and Problem-Solving concepts.

This is a course for children of 7-13 years of age that have shown interest in learning to code or improving their coding skills in an engaging, inclusive and interactive environment.

Our courses allow students to engage in fun and interactive activities that challenge their creative problem-solving skills.

Students learn through solving both unplugged (not using a computer) and computer-based logic problems.

Computer Science for Children Explained

This is a course for children of 7 to 13 years of age that have shown an interest in learning to code or improving their coding skills in an engaging, inclusive and interactive environment.

The students are divided into 2 age groups:

  • Children aged 7 to 10
  • Children aged 11 to 13

The courses are divided into 2 levels:

  • Beginner Computer Science
  • Intermediate Computer Science (see more info below)

An Introduction to
Future Learning Computer Science Summer Academy

Students learn through solving both unplugged (not using a computer) and computer-based logic problems.

For this summer we are offering the following courses:

Beginner Computer Science Course 1
(age 7 to 10) and (age 11 to 13)

  • Focuses on students with minimal or no experience of Computer Science use.
  • Uses Computational Thinking as a building block to ease them into understanding coding.

Intermediate Computer Science Course 2
(age 7 to 10) and (age 11 to 13)

  • Aims to challenge students with prior coding knowledge.
  • Allows them opportunities to further expand on their understanding of coding and computer science.
  • Provides the opportunity for those students who have completed course 1 to progress into it and further cement their newfound.
  • Confidence in their coding and problem-solving skills.

Course structure

The programme is divided into different modules. After each module students show their understanding of the concepts covered via the way of interactive and practical class activities that directly allow for students to practice any newly learnt concepts. For example, students may show their knowledge of coding by designing a game, or show what is meant by the term “algorithm” by drawing a flowchart.

CS Outcome

Learning outcomes

For those students with no prior experience:

  • to possibly develop a new interest in their lives

For those who already love coding and computer science:

  • to broaden their understanding by way of challenging activities.

No matter what course your child decides to participate in, they will develop skills such as problem-solving and coding throughout their short journey with us, skills that will stay with them as they progress through education
