Zim Kids
Creative coding workshop

Everything you need to teach coding is here!

Created by Professor Dan Zen, 'Zim Kids' is a visual and rewarding way to introduce children to coding. This online coding workshop is curriculum aligned and delivered in bite-sized chunks where students are introduced to a concept and immediately get to type some code and see stunning results. Support materials are exceptional too with a video library and sections dedicated to teaching and learning.

eChalk is so impressed with Zim we use it to create our own games and simulations. It has never been easier to create beautiful interactivity with so little code.

Head over to Zim Kids to start learning to code, but before you do I recommend watching the introductory video on 'How to use Zim Kids'.
