Code Club UA is a network of free programming clubs. Within the framework of this project, volunteers have the opportunity to teach children of 9-11 years old to write computer programs, create computer games, animations and websites. Lesson in the club is held once a week in schools (or libraries, kids clubs) after classes. Within an hour, children study and implement one project.
Tasks are fun and creative, children are eager to attend the classes, learn about the logic of computer programs, get real practical experience in creating projects.
Programming is always useful, even if a child is not dreaming about a career in the IT sphere. Programming is a way of thinking, an approach to problem solving, a way to find the best solution. Skills obtained when writing a code will be useful later in the study of sciences.
In our time of constant technical advancement it is not enough simply to use technological solutions. You need to understand how they work and how to manage them.
Code Club was launched in 2012 in the UK by web designer Claire Sutcliffe and programmer Linda Sandvik. The idea has received wide support and now there are more than 7,000 clubs in Britain. The program of projects, written by programmers, had been tested and highly appraised by children in 20 pilot clubs. After that, similar code clubs were introduced in 32 countries around the world.
Currently, there are already more than 502 programming clubs in Ukraine, where almost 7,000 children are studying. The main purpose of Code Club UA is to open programming clubs all over Ukraine, which is about 19.5 thousand establishments. New volunteers and support are always welcome at Code Club.
Empowering people to make a difference is one of our goals.
So if you want to work on a project that matters, if you want to make change real, open source projects are a great startGET INVOLVED
