Code with Kat was born out of a love of programming and teaching.

As a software developer and teacher with experience teaching in Secondary schools, and training adults, I understand the need for good computational thinking skills in life and in employment. I have worked with younger children on a voluntary basis and want to provide fun, flexible activity sessions for children aged 8 and above.

I believe that good learning is often born from play and investigation, but that a thorough understanding of the concepts is also important. My sessions will offer opportunities for both.

I also want the learning to be able to continue after the workshop. My workshops are run, where possible, with free software and low-cost equipment so that attendees can follow their interests further. I can also offer advice on how to access some of the software on the facilities available in our public libraries.
