Code Club Needs You!

Code Club Needs You!

Would you like to help run a code club?

Come to our meeting!

Where? Street Library

Date?   Wednesday 21st March

Time?   4 p.m. – 6 p.m.

Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for children and young people. We are part of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a charity which works to put the power of digital making into the hands of people all over the world.

Our meetups are fun, friendly and informal gatherings for teachers, community leaders, volunteers and anyone interested in finding out more about what we do.

If you are already running or hosting a club then come along and say hello; this is a chance to meet people involved in other clubs so we can share resources and help each other.

Or if you’d like to get involved in running a Code Club then come along and find out more.

Our coordinator for the area will be on hand to answer any questions you have about starting or running a club.

There will be snacks and drinks too!

If you have any questions in advance of the event, please get in touch via or @CodeClubSW on Twitter.
