About Codepod

Codepod is a school holiday course that teaches the fundamentals of coding and programming through the development of a customisable platform game.

The interactive lessons teach children to make their own game, gaining an introduction to key programming concepts in a fun and intuitive way. We use a ‘drag and drop’ coding program that is child-friendly but built upon the logic and concepts of real-world programming languages.

At the end of the course, each child’s game can then be exported to be played and further developed at home using a free-to-use version of the Stencyl software utilised during the course.

My son thoroughly enjoyed the course and came home every day brimming with ideas and excitement. The sense of pride and achievement at having coded his own computer game was so rewarding.

Our son had an amazing time on his first coding course, he was really eager to go every day and learnt lots of new skills over the three days. He made new friends and enjoyed working with the staff. He’s desperate to come back to do another course very soon.

My daughter finally found an activity which combines her loves of creativity and technology. The leaders were all lovely and the facilities are excellent.

My son thoroughly enjoyed these holiday sessions. We have been searching for sessions such as these and we will be back. Would recommend to anyone with a child interested in gaming or computers.

Absolutely fabulous! Easy to book the course, brilliant facilities and one very happy little girl!

The course was fantastic from start to finish. The booking was easy and the way the course was managed had my son talking about it all week. He couldn’t wait to go to bed so he could get back up and get to Codepod! We will be waiting for the next available course!

The Codepod course was absolutely brilliant. My 10 year old thoroughly enjoyed the creativity and fun, and learned so much. Thank you Codepod team.

My son was so excited every morning to come in for Codepod. He loved everything about the course.
