At Code Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
This is why Code Club supports a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs, where young people aged 9–13 build and share their ideas with code while learning along the way.
They have established a body of Code Clubs in libraries across Hampshire, and we'd like your help to keep it growing.
In the club sessions, children make games, animations, and websites using free projects, which are easy-to-follow step-by-step guides that help them learn Scratch, HTML/CSS, and Python. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow young people to build their knowledge incrementally, which also means there’s no need for the adult running the session to be a computing expert.
We also support active clubs with a range of extra resources, including certificates and posters, as well as offering competitions and prize draws for them.
Code Club is a key educational programme of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity working to inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making.
