Popular game apps like Angry Birds, Candy Crush and Neko Atsume all started life as an idea from the imagination of a creative coder. Using online software that your budding coders can continue using at home, they will have a go at making a basic app; learning the skills that all coders need to ‘app-ly’ when designing a new app. Perhaps the concept for the next generation of Pokemon Go! could be formed at this very club?

Information for Parents/Guardians regarding Internet use

During September’s Creative Computing Club, we will be using an online software called App Lab, and will be making use of Google Image Search to add personal touches to the app your child will create during the session.

  • App Lab, by, requires students to be 13+ to use the software because of the potential for sharing of content. Therefore, we will require the adult who will be accompanying your child to this month’s Creative Computing Club to register on their behalf, and to be responsible for them whilst using the software.
  • As part of the session, we will discuss internet safety as related to sharing of data and using search engines, as well as copyright on pictures and information found online.

When continuing with projects at home, we advise you to use your own judgement and follow your family policy for internet use with your children. is an educational website, used by students and teachers all over the world. However, it is important to be aware that other users of App Lab will be 13+, and the projects shared in the public app gallery will have been created by them.

Whilst every endeavour is made to ensure that suitable restrictions are placed on the ability of children to access inappropriate materials, we cannot be held responsible for the nature or content of materials accessed through the Internet.
