Ireland's and the Uk's Number 1 Kids Coding and Computing Club. - We provide live online sessions!
Almost every field of human endeavour relies more and more on software and software development for success. Other than coding and logical thinking being necessary skills, they’ll also give your child a chance to both be well paid in the future and also to do some of the more interesting and challenging jobs likely to be around. It has been predicted that be 2025 there are likely to be over 1 million unfilled jobs in the US alone that will be dependent on coding. It is predicted by the Irish Management Institute (IMI) that by 2025 50% of present jobs will be automated.
Kids Coder Club run physical workshops in the South-East and throughout Ireland with associated clubs and also have online classes. We teach children computer coding in a fun manner within a safe environment. Students can learn complex programming concepts with a fun graphical interface. We ensure that your children are always exposed to best coding practises.
Headed by lead mentor Mr. Trevor Murphy:
Trevor has over 25 years of experience working within the public and private sectors for Multinational, National, SME, Educational and Training sectors. His passion is the sharing of knowledge with an emphasis on Computer Science, ICT, Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Strategic Management.
He has created and runs, Kids Coder Club https://kidscoderclub.ie/ which exposes students from 7 -18 to Computer, Coding and ICT skills within extra curriculum classes. Computing At Schools http://computingatschools.ie/ which aids schools across Ireland within the areas of Computer Science, ICT and Cyber-Safety. Alignment.ie http://alignment.ie/ which aids companies to understand their strategic position. Also is the co-founder of www.makethatcourse.com
Trevor study at Waterford IT, IT Carlow and Maynooth University attaining NCEA, Dip, HDip and MSc.
What We Do – What is coding for kids?
The aim of this course is to take the fear out of the unknown and give the students an overview of the different elements of Computer Science, such as, engineering, science, mathematics and technology. We ensure that the kids have fun while they learn life skills that could see them gain employment in this sector in the future.
Upon completion of this 3 phased extra curriculum programme students will have covered critical areas of computing and coding. Gaining an understanding of many different areas from operating systems, networking, file extensions and file sizes, binary usage, command line usage whilst also covering algorithms, logic, syntax structures and debugging.
What is “Computing”?
Computing is the study of how computers and computer systems work, how they are constructed and programmed, and the foundations of information and computation. Not only is computing extraordinarily useful, it is also intensely creative and creates a sense of satisfaction and excitement for the kids when they see their ideas come to life.
Coding is the process of using a programming language to get a computer to behave how you want it to. Every line of code tells the computer to do something, and a document full of lines of code is called a script. Each script is designed to carry out a job. Coding is what makes is possible to create applications and web sites. Applications that are developed using coding include just about every piece of software that we might use on a daily basis.
Benefits of Learning Coding
Learning coding empowers you to do many things you wouldn’t otherwise be able to do. These things include hand-crafting your own websites, becoming a career coder or even starting a technology business. Most importantly, you’ll be able to understand the technology shaping your world.
Computing is a Discipline
Mathematics and physics similarly to computing are disciplines, exploring foundational principles and ideas, such as algorithms for discovering the shortest paths in graphics or understanding approaches to flow controls. This differs from technology and skills such as the ability to use Excel which align with ICT elements. ICT involves exploring and developing skills for using popular applications, thereafter developing in the direction of business processes in organisations.

Primary & Post Primary Classes:
Bespoke Post-Primary School Courses
Delivered In House
Part of our services are the delivery of courses to secondary level students. These bespoke courses greatly enhance problem solving, interpersonal and self-directional skills helping students succeed in their future careers. They also aim to increase awareness and encourage interest in the field of Computer Science.
We have developed bespoke courses which are as follows:
INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTER SCIENCE – COMPUTING, PROGRAMMING & IT SKILLS
We have had an excellent uptake rate to date particularly for Transition Year Students. We offer discounts to schools who uptake 2 of these courses. These courses can be implemented within any term of the school year. Please direct all inquiries to email@example.com or check out Computingatschools.ie
Primary and Post-Primary Teacher Training
Primary and Post-Primary Cyber Safety
Kids Coder Club in conjunction with Cyber Safety Ireland provide schools with Student, Teacher and Parent Workshops along with AUP updating and creation.
If you feel you or your school may benefit from this service please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
