  • Fife Coding Academy for Primary School age Children

    Created: 30/09/2021

    Around 2,000 primary school pupils from Fife are to take part in this year’s Virtual Coding Academy.  Designed by Fife College, with support from Fife Council’s Economic Development Team, the Virtual Coding Academy offers pupils in P5-P7 an introduction to the fundamentals of computer programming.

    With over 1,500 registrations so far, from 20 primary schools across the region, it is anticipated that up to 2,000 pupils will take part in this year’s Academy.

    The 18-week programme, now in its second year, offers pupils the opportunity to work through a range of basic programming on HTML, CSS and Python.  The HTML element of the programme brings in practical and creative exercises such as drafting text and uploading images for a webpage. On Python, pupils get the chance to learn how to programme games.

    The launch of this year’s Virtual Coding Academy coincided with National Coding Week (13 September), an annual event that prompts people to learn new digital skills or share the skills they have.
