MAMA.codes at the Science Museum
We’re looking ahead to the STEM:SORTED event at the Science Museum on the 20th May 2018. It’s sure to be an amazing day for families and we’re really pleased to have been chosen from a huge list of suppliers.
We think this kind of event is super important as it highlights the skills our youngest generations will need for future jobs. The world’s changed dramatically in the last 20 years and this pace shows no sign of slowing. Skills like coding are already highly sort after and will become vital in the next 20 years.
What can parents expect on the day?
MAMA.codes will be showcasing a variety of our projects aimed at Early Years and Key Stage 1, children aged 3-8. We will be creating simple and fun animations using the tablet-based ScratchJr app. ScratchJr is a visual coding app that teaches even pre-reading children basic principles of programming, while also allowing them to express their creativity visually, through animation and with sound.
We use nursery rhymes, song, jokes and even some Shakespeare!
Take a look through our gallery at some of the amazing creations the children, as young as 3, have created:
The day is sure to be a great time for the whole family, it’s a great opportunity to help develop young passions for STEM and start to build confidence in something so crucial for the future.
Many MAMA.codes parents are also discovering coding at the same time as their children. In fact we encourage parents to get hands on as much as possible as it’s a great journey to take together. Johanna and Dylan are a mother and daughter who’ve done just that:
We’d love to see you at the Science Museum but if you can’t make it be sure to check out local code clubs on our events page, here.
