App Making Holiday CodeSpace Camp

Ever had an awesome idea for an app? Well now is your chance!

In this workshop, which is the advanced version of Game Making Mania, kids will learn how to create games which get turned into iOS/Android apps which can be downloaded onto the child’s or their parent’s smartphones or tablets.

Kids will learn how to create a game which works on mobile devices and they learn how to add touch controls, mobile features, menus, restart buttons and everything else you need to create a mobile app!

And of course we’ll also cover how to create your own games & make more advanced video games using our fantastic drag-and-drop coding software.

So…Are you ready to become a junior app developer?

The whole idea of this workshop is to take the skills from the Game Making Mania course and take them to the next level.

In the make your own iPhone/Android game building workshop, we teach kids how to create more advanced games & turn it into apps. We teach kids to think about great games and think about their game and how they can design it for their target market. We get kids to design their games and apps to enhance their coding knowledge and we also give them practical skills to apply their coding skills for real-world applications.

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Will my child get to take what they make home?

Unfortunately kids can’t take home the robots :(, but for lots of our other workshops they get to take their creations home.

Q. Will food be provided?

For allergy reasons, we ask that you pack your child’s recess or lunch each day.

Q. What ages do you cater for?

We cater for a wide range of ages of kids and teens, depending on the exact workshop and subject of that workshop. Please find a workshop near you and find the ages under “Workshop Details”.

Q. How many kids in a class?/How many teachers/assistants are there?

A: We run workshops for a range of class sizes, from around 7 all the way to more than 60+ kids at special events. However most workshops we run have between 15-25 kids in them and we have between 2-3 teachers/assistants in that class. We don’t have lots of assistants, instead we focus on having better ones, which create a better learning environment overall.

Q. Does my child have to bring in their iPhone/Device?

A: No, we provide all devices to work on in class and then at the end of the day we will email home the link to your child’s creation.

Q. Does my child have to provide a computer?

No, we provide all required computers for almost all workshops – but sometimes we will run a BYOD workshop, but if this is a case it will be specifically mentioned in the workshop.

Q. Can we run private workshops?

Yes, at CodeSpace Education we can run private coding workshops for children, teenagers and adults at your school, workplace, library or organisation. We can sometimes also do private workshops at homes, but please contact us to discuss this further.

Q. Do the kids just sit in front of the computers all day?

No, we take recess and lunch breaks that are taken away from the computers to get some fresh air. We also will sometimes participate in learning activities that are done away from the computers (depends on the workshop).

Q. What if my child is sick on the day?

We understand that you can’t control when your kids get sick, which is why, unlike some of our competitors we will give you a full credit for a future workshop, providing proof is produced.

We don’t offer any child care rebate available at this current time. Join our VIP Club so you know when it becomes available.
