Local students are in for a treat with two coding clubs being run as after-school library programs starting this month.

Code Club gives students the opportunity to create and code simple programs and games, with the LEGO Mindstorm session helping 11-15 year old’s develop their enthusiasm for STEM skills, by computer coding and creating projects using robots.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli said the after-school program would offer multiple benefits to local students.

“Council is passionate about giving local young people an opportunity to learn and develop their skills and it is important to do that from a young age,” Cr Fedeli said.

“Our libraries host a variety of programs throughout the year to offer people of all ages the chance to expand their knowledge and this is no different.

“Coding makes it easier for people to create computer software, games, apps and websites and it is amazing that our local young people will have the chance to learn more about this at our libraries.

“I encourage those interested to register now to not miss out.”

The Code Club and LEGO Mindstorm will be held at Oran Park Library through Term 3 with registrations now open.
