Summer Code Club

Barclays Code Playground

Welcome to Summer Code Club

We’ve got something fun to add to your summer holiday activities list –  our free Summer Code Club sessions.

Each week we’ll take on a new coding challenge, and learn some exciting digital skills along the way. New for this year, all of our projects will be made using ‘Python 3’ on the EduBlocks coding platform. All you need to get involved is an internet browser and access to both EduBlocks and trinket.io. You don’t need to create an account for either site to take part.

Our experienced Digital Eagles coders will be running daily online sessions you can join in your Summer Code Club at school, at home or wherever you are, with a choice of timings to suit your summer schedule.

Click the button below to book your place. If you’re organising a group activity, you only need to book one slot for your club in each of the sessions that you plan to attend across the summer. Each day we’ll follow the same activity, with new activity in the series starting each week. Once you’ve booked your sessions, take a look at our introductory guide to EduBlocks by clicking the button below.

 

Equipment for your club

You can join our Summer Code Club from the classroom or from home. All you need is a device with an up to date internet browser, and a good internet connection. Our online sessions can be viewed on your screen at home or displayed on a projector or a smart board for easier viewing in a classroom setting.

Here’s a link to the free EduBlocks platform we use for our sessions. You may also need trinket.io to display your projects, but don't worry, you don't need to create an account.
