Calling SAs to support Code Clubs
Want to inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making? We’re looking for STEM Ambassadors to join a global network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for 9 to 13 year-olds in schools, libraries, and community venues.
You don’t need to be a coding genius to volunteer, you just need to be willing to learn some basic Scratch, Python, or HTML alongside your club. Code Club’s projects are easy-to-follow, step-by-step guides which help young people learn coding while creating games, animations, and websites.
There are currently over 6,000 Code Clubs in the UK reaching an estimated 90,000 young people each week. The sessions generally run for one hour per week, and the minimum commitment is 12 weeks. However, if you aren’t able to make time every week, you can team up with colleagues or friends and take turns.
Please get in touch if you want to get involved.
Anyone interested should be sent the Code Club sign-up link jumpto.cc/STEMAmbassadors
