MET students run Code Club for primary school students
Brighton MET students are taking part in a project which will see them establish and run a 24-week after school Code Club at City Academy Whitehawk Primary School.
Children from the school were invited to Brighton MET on Thursday 14 March for a digital taster session run by staff and students. The children received an informal talk about digital careers and got a chance to see student work.
Code Club was founded in 2012, and in 2015 joined forces with the Raspberry Pi Foundation, a registered UK charity. Code Club is a key educational programme for the Foundation, working to help many more young people learn how to build their ideas with code.
The MET student ambassadors support a nationwide network of volunteers and educators who run free coding clubs where young people aged 9-13 build and share their ideas, learning along the way. Through this partnership, our students are able to act a role models for the children in the Code Club and positive ambassadors for promoting the future of digital education.
"Our aim is to inspire the next generation to get excited about computing and digital making.’’
