Code Playground

Code Playground

Code Playground is our online platform to help you and your kids get to grips with the basic of coding.

Why is coding so important?

Coding is the language that we use to talk to computers and tell them what to do. It drives the software in every device, phone and camera – but you’ll find it in everyday household appliances too. Coding is part of the national curriculum too, and learning what makes tech tick could give your kids a head start in the world of work.

Give them a helping hand by bringing them along to a coding session with our Digital Eagles – experts who’ll guide your children as they take on fun challenges that introduce them to the basics of coding.

 

DigiSafe Cadets 
Brought to you by Barclays Code Playground, DigiSafe Cadets is a fun and interactive workshop for 7-11yr olds. Kids are now growing up in a digital world and as well as getting to grips with the basics of computing, it's really important that they understand how to stay safe online.


Our Digital Eagles will be on hand to introduce the basics of coding and game building with a cyber security twist. During the session, we also run what we call ‘Mission Control,’ which helps parents and guardians to get to grips with the stuff their kids are doing online and how to keep them safe!

 

Learn to code with us

We run monthly 2-hour coding sessions for children aged 7 to 17 in selected branches. It’s a really fun way to learn the basics and develop digital skills for the future. Bring your children along with their laptops and our Digital Eagles will help them discover coding.

Not only did the boys both code their own game, but the Digital Eagles explained it to them and to both me and Dad in a way we could understand, so that we could help the kids if we needed to.
