Code Clubs aims to wel­come older chil­dren, check out the Pi Zero-based body scan­ner, and a 3D-printed method of solv­ing the Ru­bik’s Cube.

The Rasp­berry Pi Foun­da­tion has an­nounced it’s ex­pand­ing Code Club to reach se­condary school ages up to 13. This widens the orig­i­nal tar­get age range of Code Club, which was from 9 to 11. To ac­com­mo­date the broader range, new projects are avail­able and Code Club will con­tinue to cre­ate more re­sources to build on the sup­port of­fered to this age group.

Be­fore the an­nounce­ment a pi­lot group of 50 UK se­condary schools were en­listed back in May to dis­cover how sup­port for them could best be im­ple­mented and how Code Club could work for chil­dren aged 12 and 13.

The ex­panded age range helps Code Club re­spond to the huge de­mand and cur­rently one in five UK state-sec­tor se­condary schools have reg­is­tered with the pro­gramme and al­most all 600 are run­ning Code Clubs.

Code Club has gone from strength to strength and we wish it great suc­cess. More at https:// blog.code­club.org.uk/2017/09/05/9-to-13.
