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. This year our projects will be made using a mixture of Scratch, VEXcodeVR and Micro:Bit.
Our experienced Digital Eagles coders will be running online sessions every Monday and Tuesday at 10:00am and 2:00pm. You can join in your Summer Code Club at home, at school or wherever you are.
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 project starting each week.
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 Scratch platform we use for most of our sessions. You will also need access to VEXcodeVR and the Micro:bit website.
