At the Coding Club, we think all children should have the opportunity to learn to code, no matter who they are or where they come from.
The projects are easy to follow, step-by-step guides which help young people learn Scratch, HTML & CSS, and Python by making games, animations, and websites. The projects gradually introduce coding concepts to allow young people to build their knowledge incrementally.
We also support active clubs members with a range of extra resources, including certificates and posters, as well as offering competitions and prize draws for them.
