Code Club: Stoke-on-Trent Meetup
Wednesday, September 30, 2015 @ 6:00 am - 8:00 pm
Come and find out more about Code Club, meet our volunteers and come eat some food at the fantastic B-Arts space in Stoke-on-Trent on September 30th.
Primary schools all over Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire 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 after-school coding clubs for children aged 9-11
We create projects for our volunteers to teach at 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!
Oh, and if I haven’t mentioned it already there will be refreshments – more to come!!
I look forward to meeting you!
