Welcome to Code Clubs in Cornwall
We are delighted to be working alongside the charity Code Club which runs a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs for young people aged 9-13.
The clubs and workshops are organised and delivered with the dedicated support of local volunteers. Can you help run a Code Club?
Support Code Club
Schools and Volunteers
Software Cornwall with the support of the wider software community are committed to supporting the development of code clubs to help young people learn to code and develop skills in digital engineering.
Supporting Code Clubs
Software Cornwall recognise the need to get our children excited about coding and making electronic devices work. We would like to see every school in Cornwall, primary and secondary, running after/out of school coding clubs. These clubs are supported by parent volunteers and volunteers from the Cornish software industry who provide a 1 hour session every week building and extending upon the schools computing curriculum.
