During the live stream, Max Wainewright, the creator of Espresso Coding, will be running an interactive session on coding. He will be expanding on elements covered during the Coding Summer Camp, giving teachers an opportunity to see coding in action and shortening the learning curve for teaching students this new concept. At the end of the session, the worldwide audience will have the chance to pose questions to Max during a live Q&A.
The 6-week Espresso Coding Summer Camp included a detailed walkthrough of features and functions of Espresso Coding, explored the Coding elements of the National Curriculum, and offered step-by-step guides, lesson plan ideas and example activities to excite and engage pupils. Over 1,200 schools across the UK are currently enrolled in the Espresso Coding Summer Camp. Discovery Education is offering their highly-acclaimed Espresso Coding, a digital programme designed to teach pupils to code and create their own apps, at no cost to schools until 31st October 2014.
