Connected Libraries offers Code Clubs for children interested in learning more about computer coding.
We have sessions online and in library branches so you can choose which suits you.
In 2023 for term two we will be offering beginner python html coding online as well as in person beginner scratch coding (Doveton library only).
The sessions in the Code Clubs are sequential and it is best if you can commit to all the sessions in the term.
Note: sessions do not run during school holidays
Scratch for Beginners
Learn the basics of Scratch and develop your child’s skills in problem solving and programming.
These sessions are aimed at children aged 8-14 who are new to computer coding.
The lessons build on each other so it is best if you can commit to the whole term of sessions when booking.

Attendees will need to be able to access Zoom for these sessions.
