Code Club: Stoke-on-Trent Meetup
Tuesday, June 21, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
We’re excited to be returning coming to Stoke-on-Trent in June and hosting a meetup with the superb folks at Wavemaker at the Mitchell Arts Centre.
This is your opportunity to:
– meet the people involved in the other clubs so we can share resources and help each other.
– find out what it’s like to run a Code Club, or what other Code Clubs have been doing.
Oh, and there will be complimentary refreshments for you as well.
As well as the latest Code Club news, the evening will include chance to tinker with BBC micro:bits and try out the new Code Club micro:bit projects as well as dabble in other bits of tech too.
If you’ve got an idea for a short talk (either one you’d like to do or something you’d like to hear about), then please contact Tim at firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @codeclubwmids.
Our volunteers go to their local club for an hour a week and teach one project a week. Many of the projects use Scratch, for example.
I look forward to seeing you on the 21st June.
About our fabulous venue hosts Wavemaker
Wavemaker Stoke is about ‘making, making work’. They are a Comic Relief via Robbie Williams’ Give it Sum and Nominet Trust funded three year programme and their aim is to create a safe and stimulating maker space for designer makers, learners and experts in North Staffordshire, the creative county.
Wavemaker offer a range of outreach programmes, holiday and weekend workshops as well as hosting a number of different clubs including after-school Minecraft and Hackspace. Code Club aligns with Wavemaker’s aims to address the gap in digital skills with young people, specifically the skills for the future. Wavemaker provides a space where learners mix with makers and experts to ask questions, problem solve, deconstruct and rebuild, providing opportunities to develop skills.
What are my transport options getting to the event?
Stoke has excellent public transport options. Wavemaker is near to all bus routes in and out of Hanley and across Stoke, a 10 minute bus ride or 20-25 minute walk from Stoke Train Station, Wolverhampton St.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
What if I want to watch the football as well?
As it’s the Euros too, I’m sure we can lobby to get the European football on a screen too if you wish to keep an eye out or watch it too!!!
