Filling young minds with code, those delightful monsters!
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.
