As part of our #StayHome with the British Council programme we are organising a webinar that will help you understand why coding is crucial for your children's future. It will also show how your kids can easily start coding using the Make Code platform, free of charge.
After the webinar, we will share with you 13 tutorial videos which will explain in detail how to use all the features of the platform to easily create first coding projects.
