Raspberry Pi, BBC micro:bit, Minecraft, Scratch and Sonic Pi offer exciting new ways to get creative with computer code. Gaming, electronics, and making your own music are just a few things you can do with coding.
Young people can learn how by joining our Code Crackers Club, which runs at most libraries, depending on demand.
Code Crackers Club courses
Courses last 4 weeks during term time. Weekly sessions begin at 4pm on Thursdays and last an hour. The total cost per child for all 4 sessions is £4 – this must be paid in full at the first session.
Sessions also take place every other Saturday at Grays library, from 11am to midday.
The course is aimed at children aged between 9 and 11 years-old. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the full duration of each session.
Contact your local library for an application form.
Places are limited and must be booked in advance due to very high levels of interest.
If you are interested in supporting library staff in Code Crackers, offering an hour a week on a Thursday afternoon with some time also practising beforehand, there are volunteer opportunities available.
