A weekly Code Club started last week at Charing Cross Library. Code Club is a nationwide volunteer-led after school club initiative encouraging children from 9-11 years old to learn computer programming. Volunteer computer whiz Rob is running the club at Charing Cross Library.
At Charing Cross most of the children were completely new to programming and using Scratch but at the end of the hour they had all created a project (like this example) where Felix (a cat) chases Herbert (a mouse), catches him, says “Mmmm”… and then poor Herbert turns into a ghost!
There were some fabulously colourful and accessorised cats and mice (obviously influenced by London Fashion Week). The children all enjoyed it and said they would be logging on to their project at home and would be definitely coming back this week to do another project.
There are a few places still available for this afternoon’s session – please contact the library to book.
