What does each coding adventure include?

Schools get access to our Eco Coding Adventure for 5-9 year-olds, completely free of charge.

Both our in-person and our interactive Eco Coding Adventure include a 30-minute show and two 45-minute follow-up activities.

Do I need to ask the school before nominating?

No - you let us know the details, and we will contact the school to gauge interest and find a suitable date.

What equipment do schools need for our Eco Coding Adventure?

We've designed this so schools don't need lots of computers or equipment to take part. There's an unplugged activity which doesn't need any technology at all, and the online activity is optional.

For the online show: Schools will need a computer with internet access and a screen so the children can watch the show together.

For the unplugged activity: Schools will need a hall or communal space (indoors or outside), print-outs of the activity templates, whiteboards/paper and pens, and a way of setting out grids on the floor, (e.g. with chalk, tape or rubber mats).

For the online activity (optional): Schools will need a computer or device with internet access for each child or pair of children.
