Our commitment to providing children with the skills they need to develop and grow continues, and we now offer after-school virtual code clubs for children aged 9-16. Technoclub is an opportunity for young people to gain computing experience during live interactive sessions outside of school.
The club provides a free weekly session where pupils will learn new Computer Science skills whilst working towards an end project goal. It’s aimed at all abilities and only requires internet access. Participants do not need any prior knowledge or experience in coding or programming to join the club.
The club is great for those who have attended our workshops in schools, allowing them to build their skills at their own pace and in a less formal learning environment. It is also suitable for complete novices as the sessions are designed deliberately to accommodate learners of all levels.
Technoclub is run by our experienced and dedicated Delivery Officers, who rotate their teaching so that each session is new and fresh. A wide range of computing topics will be covered, making use of a variety of programming languages such as Greenfoot, Logo, Python, BBC micro:bit, Scratch, Lego Mindstorm and some fun (and practical) theory-based Computational Thinking sessions.
Technoclub runs throughout the school term between 4.30pm-6.30pm on Mondays and Wednesdays, and between 4-6pm on Fridays.
This term, we will cover Python Turtle and Minecraft in our Monday sessions, on Wednesdays, we will focus on getting re-familiarised with programming by completing an exciting set of activities using Scratch, and our Friday session will look at learning and playing with tech in a fun environment.
