Code Club: Birmingham meetup, Tuesday 2nd June 2015
Tuesday, June 2, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Come and find out more about Code Club and meet our volunteers in Birmingham on Tuesday 2nd June.
As part of National Volunteers Week we are celebrating the work of our volunteers in Birmingham and the West Midlands region with a meetup, and inviting all who who interested in running a Code Club to come along and find out more.
Primary schools all over Birmingham and West Midlands region more widely are seeking volunteers to run after-school Code Clubs for their students and help their teachers deliver the new Computing curriculum.
What is Code Club?
Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led coding clubs for children aged 9-11
We create projects for our volunteers to teach to after school coding clubs or at non school venues such as libraries. The projects we make teach children how to program by showing them how to make computer games, animations and websites. Our volunteers go to their local club for an hour a week and teach one project a week. Many of the projects use Scratch.
At the event:
- find out what’s involved in starting a Code Club
- get an overview of the training offered to volunteers
- speak to existing volunteers and schools that currently run Code Clubs
- receive help to match volunteers with schools looking to establish a code club
- answer any questions that you may have about starting and running a club.
Calling current volunteers >> lightning talks
We’re inviting current volunteers to give a brief five minute talk to share their experiences of running a Code Club with prospective and existing voluntees – we’d love that!
We look forward to meeting you!
This event is hosted by Tim Wilson, the new Code Club Co-ordinator for the West Midlands region @codeclubwmids
