Code Club

You may have heard of Code Club, but if not you should hear about it now!

Code Club is an volunteer-run after school club, teaching kids how to program using games and the Scratch visual programming language. They already run over 250 programs around the country and want to get even more people involved so even more kids can have a Code Club at their school.

They are running two short courses for adults who want to volunteer; you can learn Scratch, and get some tips on how to get involved running or helping out at a Code Club at your local primary school. There will be a Q&A with co-founder Clare Sutcliffe and a Scratch workshop.

I think it’s a brilliant idea to get more children interested in programming and technology. If you know a little bit of programming and want to help out doing it for the kids then get yourself along.

More details are at their website.
