Code-along with Code Club Aotearoa in Python

Join a remote code-along session hosted by Code Club Aotearoa. The online session will introduce ākonga to the basic concepts of programming using text-based language Python and encourage participants to join one of our many, free to attend, Code Clubs throughout Aotearoa NZ.

Code Club Aotearoa is on a mission to help close the digital divide. We want to see every child in Aotearoa New Zealand, grow up with the opportunity to make a meaningful difference in their community. We believe the best way forward is to deliver high-quality digital technology education accessible across financial, cultural and geographic lines.

The session is about exposing young learners to text-based programming using Trinket and Python, building on the skills learned in Scratch and encouraging more independent digital making. The project is for ākonga aged 10-13 and participants will need to be familiar with using a keyboard as there is typing involved. The session is an hour-long and open to all schools, community groups, and children, regardless of whether they usually attend Code Club. However, we recommend a basic understanding of introductory programming or experience using a block-based language.

We want to see Code Clubs in every school, kura and library across the motu, at the end we’ll share Code Club registration info and offer our ongoing support to those wanting to join the Code Club Aotearoa whānau!
