Coding and Robotics

Our STEAM programs are about fun, creativity and learning through exploring technology.

2019 brings a new range of STEAM programs to the Libraries;

  • Coding Club - for beginner coders, ages 9-12 years
  • Robotics Club - some coding experience necessary, ages 10-14 years.

Bookings are required for these programs.

Coding Club

Coding Club is a fun, interactive club designed to encourage children to learn through exploring a variety of computer programming languages and software. Learning to code helps to strengthen problem-solving skills and critical thinking and supports key academic subjects such as science, maths and technology.

City of Darwin Libraries Coding Club runs during school terms; these are usually run in six-week blocks. Participants need to be able to attend all sessions in the six-week block to be able to register for this program. The content is aimed at beginner coders aged 9-12 years.

This term will focus on 3D modelling and animation. This module will repeat content from the 2017 and 2018 Code Club program.

2019 Term 3 Coding Club will be held at

  • 3.30-4.30pm Wednesday at Casuarina Library Term 3 - Blender

Robotics Club

Robotics Club is an exciting opportunity for young people to build on their coding and programming knowledge, and continue to learn through exploring technology.

City of Darwin Libraries Robotics Club runs during school terms; these are usually run in six-week blocks. Participants need to be able to attend all sessions in the six-week block to be able to register for this program. This program is suitable for young people with prior coding experience and is strictly for ages 10-14 years. 

Participants will learn how to operate and program Edison robots using block based coding software in fun, hands on sessions. This module will repeat content from the 2018 Robotics Club program.

2019 Term 3 Robotics Club will be held at

  • 3.30-4.30pm Tuesday at Darwin City Library Term 3 - Edison Robots
