Now here’s a real success story, and something all of you risc/pi readers should know about, support and shout about. This is the future unfolding…
“Code Club is a nationwide network of volunteer-led after school coding clubs for children aged 9-11. We’ve been reflecting on what we’ve achieved this year and thought we’d write a little report so you can see how we’ve been getting on.
“In September 2012 Code Clubs started in 120 schools. By September 2013 we had reached 1000 clubs, and in mid-December 2013 the number stands at 1575. With an average club size of 14.9 this means around 23,000 children are currently learning to code in a Code Club and our volunteers report that the drop out rates are extremely low.
“40% of children in Code Clubs are female. With only 6.5% of Computing A-levels being taken by female students in 2013; it is encouraging that Code Club is reaching younger girls.”
