Code Club: Coventry Meetup
Wednesday, July 15, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Come and find out more about Code Club, meet our volunteers and eat some food at the fantastic Urban Coffee at Fargo Village in Coventry on July 15th
Primary schools all over Coventry and the 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 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.
- …. and eat cake!
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 some refreshments – more to come!!
I look forward to meeting you!
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
The event is at the amazing new Fargo Village development at the top of Far Gosford St. It’s a five to ten minute walk from the centre of Coventry and there’s plentiful buses and parking in the vicinity (much of which is free street parking after 6pm).
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
