Harry Potter Creative Coding Workshop (Two Hour Session)

Designed for students aged 6+, the Harry Potter Creative Coding Workshop introduces and explains the fundamentals of coding through creative and exploratory hands-on activities with the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit and Microsoft Surface Pro.

The two-hour workshop takes novice coders through basic concepts, like algorithms, loops and debugging, and provides them with an understanding of how hardware and software work together to make coding magic on screen!

Using drag-and-drop coding blocks and a Coding Wand, students will make sparks fly, pumpkins grow, feathers float, and feed tasty treats to a magical three headed dog!

Harry Potter Creative Coding Summer Camp (2 x Two Hour Sessions)

For children 8+, Microsoft Store has designed a Summer Camp that takes the coding experience further.

Over two sessions, the Harry Potter Creative Coding Camp introduces and explains basic coding concepts using the Harry Potter Kano Coding Kit and Microsoft Surface Pro.

In session one, novice coders will be introduced to basic concepts like algorithms, loops, debugging, and hacking for good, and provides them with an understanding of how hardware and software work together, to make coding magic on screen!

Building on the coding skills learned in session one, students will then hack a series of code creations, before partnering up for an introduction to pairs programming and working together to create, hack, and modify code creations in a Harry Potter hack-a-thon!
