TŪRANGA: Girls Code - After School Programme



Introductory offer: Bring a friend for free!

All our after school classes are full for term three, but we'd love to see you next term! (Or fill out our enquiry form if you would like us to put you on our waitlist for term three.)

Our newest after school class is an opportunity for girls to explore the world of Technology and Engineering alongside friends! We recognise that in many of our classes, girls are under-represented. So we've launched this class where girls can meet like minds and enjoy projects alongside their friends.

Our Girls Code after school classes are held on Auahatanga/Creativity (level four) of Tūranga. These sessions are a time of exploration, fun and carefully controlled chaos, where participants can follow their own interests, guided by some set projects to challenge students to reach well beyond what they think they are capable of!

Classes are centred around self-directed learning, with help from our expert facilitators to make projects come to life. We have a range of exciting projects for students to choose from if they need inspiration. Some projects may take a single session to complete, whereas others may keep students engaged for a month or more! When they have completed each project, they are welcome to change streams and begin learning another specialty, or continue with harder and more intense challenges! Students can also bring their own project ideas to us to work on with our support.

The cost is $15 per session but can be booked by the term. 

 

Here are some of the option streams we offer:

  • Stop Motion Animation movie making
  • LEGO Mindstorms Robotics
  • Great Ball contraptions
  • LEGO Technic building
  • Digital LEGO design

We have several options for classes:

Monday: Mixed class in Tūranga (Waitlist only—contact us!)
Wednesday: Girls class in Tūranga (Waitlist only—contact us!)
Thursday: Mixed class in New Brighton (Waitlist only—contact us!)
Friday: Mixed class in Tūranga (Waitlist only—contact us!)

 

 We have learned that age is no barrier to learning with LEGO, so we do not offer a strict age limit for any of our classes. Most children aged eight and over have begun to develop the skills necessary to get the most out of the self-directed approach we take for our after school classes. Younger children can find this environment distracting, but can also excel when given the chance to take responsibility for their own learning. Feel free to get in touch with us by phone or email if you wish to discuss our after school class programmes further before registering.
